Wisconsin got another big win on Saturday when they slipped past Indiana in the Big Ten semifinals. The win should move the Badgers up to a four or possibly five seed. Of course Sunday’s final could be the difference maker in that regard. The loss for the Hoosiers should not change a thing when it comes to their #1 seed. In the other conference semifinal, Ohio State snuck past Michigan State. Ohio State seems to be teetering between a two and a three seed. With the Spartans, Wolverines and Badgers not far behind…or potentially not far ahead, the Big Ten should have five teams with a top four seed.
