The B1G Time Power Poll: Week 10

Written January 22nd, 2013 by Joe Dexter

This week is even more proof that the Big Ten is by far the best basketball conference in all of the land. Close games, back and forth battles, conference mix ups and parity continue into week 10 of the basketball season. 

Heck, I’m pretty sure even Bo Ryan is smiling after his team defeated Indiana.  The whole nation was flashing a thumbs up though to coach zombie after Iowa defeated the Badgers at Carver Hawkeye on Sunday.

Finally, those bums up north continued their solid play against top notch opponents. Want a reminder of just how bad Michigan basketball has been the last few years? They just got their first win against a top 10 road opponent since 1996.

This week’s presents an even more interesting week. Tonight, six teams will take to the hardwood.  We will have all the coverage of Iowa and Wisconsin right here. Michigan State will take on Wisconsin. Illinois will look to bounce back against Nebrasketball.

The week wraps up with a great Sunday Match up between Michigan State and Indiana at Assembly Hall 1.

Every week, the gang at The B1g Time  rank the conference with a writer voted power poll including your’s truly. Thanks to Andy Coppens for getting this group together.
