The Big Ten Basketball regular season is dwindling down to a precious few games. Here’s how the SiriusXM Big Ten Radio team voted for this week’s edition of the Power Rankings:
1. PURDUE @BoilerBall
Make it nine wins of their last ten and the Boilermakers are again hitting their stride heading to tournament time.
2. ILLINOIS @IlliniMBB
A loss on the road to Rutgers was followed by a good win against Michigan State in East Lansing.
3. WISCONSIN @BadgerMBB
The Badgers have won four of their last five games and a showdown against Purdue in the coming days is looming.
4. OHIO STATE @OhioStateHoops
A surprising loss at home against Iowa had the faithful in Columbus trying to understand just what this Buckeyes team is about this year.
5. IOWA @IowaHoops
A road win against Ohio State in Columbus gave Iowa the kind of quality win the Hawkeyes were looking for this season.
6. MICHIGAN STATE @MSU_Basketball
The Spartans are trending in the wrong direction, losing four of their last five games.
7. RUTGERS @RutgersMBB
The string of wins against ranked opponents ended at four when Rutgers lost on the road at Purdue.
8. MICHIGAN @umichbball
The five-game suspension of Juwan Howard will be a huge challenge for this Michigan team to overcome.
9. INDIANA @IndianaMBB
Offensive execution continues to haunt the Hoosiers, who are running out of time to put together a solid stretch,
10. PENN STATE @PennStateMBB
Home wins against Michigan State and Minnesota were great confidence builders for this scrappy squad of Nittany Lions.
11. NORTHWESTERN @NUMensBBall
Three losses in a row, including a very bad outing at Minnesota, has Northwestern reeling once again this season.
12. MARYLAND @TerrapinHoops
The Terps finally snapped a five-game losing streak with a victory over Minnesota.
13. MINNESOTA @GopherMBB
Minnesota has followed a five-game losing streak with a 2-2 record over the last four outings.
14. NEBRASKA @HuskerHoops
