The Big Ten loves football but is actually way better at basketball

Indiana beat Wisconsin earlier this week in a one-possession game that was back and forth and undecided until Ben Brust missed a 3-pointer in the final seconds.
This came six days after the Badgers had destroyed Illinois.
This came two weeks after Illinois had handled Indiana in overtime.
So, to summarize, Illinois beat Indiana, then got worked by Wisconsin, then watched the Indiana team it topped top the Wisconsin team that started what is now a three-game losing streak for the Illini that will move to four Saturday unless Illinois upsets Michigan State.
Which is possible, of course.
The Spartans will only be favored by about five points.
