The NCAA Tournament is back and we’re taking your questions on the next chapter of college basketball’s rich history.
It’s time to take a closer look at how the 2017-18 season might play out and how each team ranked in the preseason standings might stack up. 1.
Indiana Hoosiers The Hoosier Basketball program has had the longest history of being a basketball program that has never won a national championship.
That is not a coincidence.
Indiana went to the Final Four in 1987 and 1988, respectively.
The last time Indiana won a Final Four was in 2001.
There are three players who are considered key members of the Hoosickie team.
Kendall Jones, the reigning Big Ten Player of the Year, is a freshman forward who has been a key part of the team’s success this season.
Tyler Ulis, who is also a freshman, has been an All-American and Big Ten Rookie of the Week.
IU also has a lot of talent at point guard, which could give it some depth if Ulis can play his way into a rotation.
Iowa State Cyclones The Cyclones are one of the top seeds in the Big Ten Conference, but they are also a team that is not always considered the top seed.
Iowa State has had some big games in recent years, including last year’s Sweet 16.
They were also one of seven teams to win a Big Ten tournament game and lost in the Final 8 to the eventual champions.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish The Fighting Irish have the most talent in the conference.
But they are one team that has struggled to win games in the postseason.
In the last four years, Notre Dame has been one of only three teams to miss the NCAA Tournament in all four years.
Indiana Big Ten Champions The Big Ten Championship game will be played on March 3 in Columbus, Ohio.
On that day, the Hoopla crew will be joined by ESPN’s Paul Finebaum, who will be taking over for Brian Windhorst on the broadcast.
We will also get some behind-the-scenes information about the game from the BigTen Championship and a look at what we can expect from each team.
