Big Ten Tournament Bracket, TV Schedule, Spreads for Friday

A number of storyline unfolded during the first day of the Big Ten Tournament: Bruce Weber likely coached his last game for Illinois; Northwestern likely played its way out of an NCAA Tournament bid in a loss to Minnesota; and, most unfortunately, Indiana senior Verdell Jones likely lost his chance to play in an NCAA Tournament game when his knee buckled in the first half.

What will Friday have in store? Here is a quick preview of today’s Big Ten Tournament action.

Big Ten Tournament Friday 2nd Round Preview

Note: all spreads via VegasInsider.com. Some were not posted when this article was published.

#1 Michigan State v #8 Iowa

  • Time: 12:00 ET
  • TV: ESPN
  • Point Spread: Michigan State -11
  • Over/Under: Not posted

Michigan State will be without uber-athletic freshman Branden Dawson and has never performed quite as well as expected in the Big Ten Tournament. Iowa has been a plucky bunch this year that has played some good teams very well. If Matt Gaetens in shooting well, watch out. I think Michigan State wins, but it won’t be easy.

#4 Wisconsin v #5 Indiana

  • Time: 2:25 ET
  • TV: ESPN
  • Point Spread: Indiana -1.5
  • Over/Under: Not posted

The Indiana Hoosiers have been on a mission this year to pay back all the teams who had owned them during the first three years of the Tom Crean era.

The only such team they haven’t vanquished at least once this year is Wisconsin, who won the teams’ only meeting in Madison earlier this year. Buoyed by the momentum, motivation, and the emotional drive of winning for their fallen leader, I expect a great performance from Indiana today. So as long as the Hoosiers play with poise down the stretch, they should win this game.

#2 Michigan v #10 Minnesota

  • Time: 6:30 ET
  • TV: BTN
  • Point Spread: Not posted
  • Over/Under: Not posted

Minnesota is playing with nothing to lose, and they won a thriller over Northwestern yesterday. Still, it’s tough to think they have the talent to pull off a second straight victory, especially with solid and balanced Michigan up next. If Tim Hardaway Jr. struggles though, and Minnesota can knock down shots, this game could be a close one. I expect Michigan to win though.

#3 Ohio State v #6 Purdue

  • Time: 8:55 ET
  • TV: BTN
  • Point Spread: Not posted
  • Over/Under: Not posted

If you predicted the Big Ten Tournament based on who the two hottest teams were coming into it, you likely would have predicted an Indiana-Purdue final. Both obviously has a long road ahead to get to that point, but don’t discount Purdue’s chances of winning today even though the Buckeyes are clearly more talented. Purdue nearly beat Ohio State in Columbus earlier this year, and on a neutral floor (with neutral calls) very well could beat them today. I think Ohio State’s talent wins out in the end, especially if the William Buford from the Michigan State game shows up, but I would not be surprised in the least to see Purdue pull off the W.

  30. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  31. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say great blog!

  32. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  33. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  34. It’s in point of fact a nice and helpful piece of info. I’m satisfied that you simply shared this useful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  35. Heya i am for the primary time here. I found this board and I find It truly helpful & it helped me out a lot. I am hoping to present something again and help others such as you aided me.

  36. Your way of telling the whole thing in this piece of writing is actually good, all be anle to simply understand it, Thanks a lot.

  37. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  38. Finally, an issue i always are enthusiastic in relation to. We have appeared for info of the quality the past a long time. Your web site is significantly loved.

  39. We are a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your website offered us with helpful info to work on. You’ve done an impressive job and our whole neighborhood will probably be thankful to you.|

  40. I visited various web pages but the audio quality for audio songs existing at this web page is really excellent.|

  41. Keep on working, great job!|
