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.

Minnesota has followed a five-game losing streak with a 2-2 record over the last four outings.

14. NEBRASKA @HuskerHoops
