Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament: Predictions

Written March 6th, 2014 by Charles

530d04f07f6f8.preview-300With the Big Ten Women’s Basketball Tournament getting underway today at Conseco Fieldhouse, I mean Banker’s Life Fieldhouse or whatever it is called now, in Indianapolis, some of us here at tBBC sat down to make our predictions for what will happen in the tournament.  Ohio State enters the tournament as the 8th seed with a 15-17 record and will need to make it to the championship game in order to qualify for the WNIT, need to finish the season with a .500 record or better; of course if they win the tournament they will be headed to the big dance.  The road for the team will be difficult but anything is possible come tournament time.  Check out our predictions below for what will happen in each of the tournament’s 11 games.

Game 1: Ohio State vs Northwestern

Ohio State. A very winnable game for both teams,  but i think OSU pulls together to get this win. The Buckeyes may not play 40 minutes of good basketball, but 30 minutes should be enough.

Game 2: Iowa vs Illinois
Iowa. Ohio State lost (twice) to Iowa but beat Illinois.
Game 3: Michigan vs Indiana
Michigan: Buckeyes split with Michigan, but beat Indiana. TTUN moves to next round.
Game 4: Minnesota vs Wisconsin
Minnesota. Buckeyes lost to both teams. We had the Wisconsin game but let it get away, we were never really in the Minnesota game.
