THIS YEAR IN THE BIG TEN

Troy Derengowski, Richmond's Sports Page

Predicted Order of Finish

  1. INDIANA.   The dark days in Bloomington are over.  Tom Crean has this team in position to win a National Championship.
  2. OHIO STATE.  The Buckeyes lost a lot of talent but will be tough again because of DeShaun Thomas and Aaron Craft.
  3. MICHIGAN.  Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. will give Michigan a great one-two punch.
  4. MICHIGAN STATE.  With Derrick Nix inside and Keith Appling outside, the Spartans will be in contention for another Big Ten title.
  5. MINNESOTA.  The Golden Gophers will be dangerous with forward Trevor Mbakwe.
  6. WISCONSIN.  The Badgers have several starters back and a good freshman in Sam Dekker.
  7. IOWA.  This may be a breakout season for third year head coach Fran McCaffery.
  8. ILLINOIS.  This may be a rebuilding project for new head coach John Groce.
  9. PURDUE.  A lot of inexperience and no Robbie Hummel.
  10. NORTHWESTERN.  John Shurna is gone but Bill Carmody has size and depth returning.
  11. PENN STATE.  Tim Frazier is back with his 18 ppg.
  12. NEBRASKA.  This team lost a lot of production from a bad team.
