Pat Caputo: This Is The Most Important Big Ten Tournament Ever For Michigan And MSU

It has not been an issue because the Spartans have reached the Final Four six of the last 12 seasons.

Michigan has been so down in basketball since the Wolverines won the Big Ten Tournament in 1998, that it has also been a non-issue – little more than a disappointing follow up to generally disheartening regular seasons.
