2013 Big Ten Tournament: Day 3 Open Thread

USA TODAY Sports

Talk about the Big Ten Tournament Semifinals here.

The last four left standing in the Big Ten Tournament are the four best teams in the Big Ten. now we get a fatal four-way to decide the winner. Had Jordan Morgan's putback not rolled off the rim last week it is possible today would have been the way to solve a four-way tie in the league. Instead, we get two really, really good semifinal games.

At 1:40pm on CBS you get Indiana and Wisconsin. The Hoosiers won the conference title outright, but Wisconsin owns them of late and won in Bloomington. I am sure that if the Badgers win again Tom Crean will complain about the hostile road environment in Chicago and early tipoff time.

The second game is Michigan State-Ohio State round three. The pair split their regular season games and played a pretty good game in last year's tourney final. The Spartans and Buckeyes are playing for a two seed and a very outside chance at a 1 seed if Duke falls off of the top line. Indiana, Gonzaga, and Louisville have to have 1 seeds locked up, but Duke's loss to Maryland could open the door for the winner of today's second semifinal to take the fourth No. 1 seed.
