Mighty Big Ten Has 4 Standing With Shot At Final 4

LARRY LAGE,AP Sports Writer

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Big Ten has four teams still in the NCAA tournament.

It is the conference’s best showing through the round of 32 — ever. And, it could get even better.

An All-Big Ten Final Four is possible because top-seeded Indiana, second-seeded Ohio State, third-seeded Michigan State and fourth-seeded Michigan will compete this week in different regions.

Minnesota and Illinois each both earned a victory to help the conference win 10 games, a total that trails the Big East’s record of 11 wins through the round of 32 in 2009 and 2012, according to STATS LLC.

Hoosiers coach Tom Crean tells The Associated Press the Big Ten prepares each program to face any style of play and to value every possession.
