Big Ten Basketball Power Rankings

New, 1 comment

Please check out the results from last week's poll.

It was another crazy week for Big Ten Basketball. Illinois pulled off a shocker against Minnesota and laid an egg against Penn State. The Wolverines are on a three game winning streak. I'll say that again, the Wolverines are on a three game winning streak. In basketball. One over those wins was over Iowa who continues to keep everyone guessing. Here is the power poll for this week.
