Just one Big Ten team is competing in action for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament today. It is highly unlikely anyone frequenting this website is rooting for that team, however.

No Big Ten teams earned a bid to this year’s men’s NIT for 2022. However, at least one team is still in action in the NIT that should have earned a NCAA Tournament bid over the lone Big Ten team playing today.
