Big Ten Champions! Wild day in Big Ten gives Hoosiers first title since 2002.

Gregory Shamus

IU clinches its first Big Ten title in 11 seasons and can clinch the title outright with a win over Ohio State on Tuesday.

It didn't seem possible five hours ago, but it has happened: Purdue upset Wisconsin in Madison, and Michigan held on to defeat Michigan State at home. Because the Badgers and the Spartans now have five losses each, and IU can do no worse than 13-5, it's official: Indiana has won its 21st Big Ten championship. The Hoosiers are now one behind Purdue for the all-time Big Ten lead, and can clinch their 12th outright Big Ten title (and first in 20 years) with a senior night win over Ohio State. A win over the Buckeyes is far from assured, but the Hoosiers are two games ahead of the field with two games remaining, something that didn't seem possible a few weeks ago. This team's goals go far beyond winning the conference, but this is a fantastic honor for a team with so many players and coaches who endured one or more 20 loss seasons.

Congrats to Coach Crean and everyone associated with the IU basketball program. Big Ten Champs!
