Bracket and Schedule Below
Performing well in or winning the Big Ten Tournament is likely the only way the Iowa Hawkeyes will make their way into the NCAA Tournament. To do so they must defeat Michigan tonight at 7:00 p.m. CST. If they do they will get the quality win over an upper tier Big Ten team that has narrowly eluded them all year, setting up a better resume for the NCAA Tournament. They will then advance to play the winner of the Ohio State v. Nebraska game on Saturday.
