A look at Big Ten teams halfway through league season
February 7, 2014HOOSIER SPORTS 365
Parity has reigned. Michigan and Michigan St. have made it a two-team race for the league title, with seven teams clustered in the middle. Here's The Star's analysis.
No. 10 MICHIGAN
Record: 17-5 overall, 9-1 in Big Ten
Postseason status: NCAA lock
Analysis: Michigan might be the surprise of the conference. The Wolverines were quietly written off when Mitch McGary's back injury sidelined him indefinitely, perhaps for the season. But behind breakout performer Nik Stauskas (17.3 points per game), Michigan is first in the Big Ten.
