Michigan feels very Top 4 or 5 in the Big Ten, unfortunately. One of the only teams that’s looked much better than expected so far
 
#5      
St John’s has a lot of new players so it is hard to tell how good scUM is. But I agree they look better than last year even without Hunter
 
#7      
Penn up 6 with 7:55 left
 
#9      
Southern giving Arizona a game in the first half. Worried about that game. They are very athletic and we cannot sleep walk through that game.

St.Johns really didn’t pass the eye test atleast to me,didn’t they lost an exhibition game to a D2 Pace University 63-59.From what i have seen so far they might just be above Depaul in the Conference standings.

While I do not think Michigan will be bad, I kind of find it hilarious that them beating St. John's at what probably felt more like a neutral court has people on social media ready to reanoint them as one of the contenders in the Big Ten, lol. I will take a bit more of a "wait and see" approach given their regular season performance the past two years.

With that said, it was a decent win for the perception of the conference - and that helps us. This will be a pretty big week for the Big Ten to gain at least a little bit more hype/respect, and no team could accomplish that by winning more than our Illini!

Tuesday 11/14
Wisconsin at Providence - 5:00 pm on FS1
#9 Duke vs. #18 Michigan State (Chicago, IL) - 6:00 pm on ESPN
#4 Marquette at #23 Illinois - 7:00 pm on FS1
Iowa at #8 Creighton - 9:00 pm on FS1

Thursday 11/16
Missouri at Minnesota - 8:00 pm on BTN (I kind of see Minnesota as hopeless, though, and want to see Mizzou with a good record when they come to St. Louis)

Friday 11/17
Maryland at #21 Villanova - 7:30 pm on FS1

Sunday 11/19
Indiana vs. #5 UConn (MSG in New York, NY) - 12:00 pm on ESPN (can't help but feel like this might be a blood bath...)

That Maryland/Villanova is going to be very interesting. Maryland with 2 bad losses already and Nova lost to Penn last night. Both teams desperate for a win and a quality one at that.

Yep, I will be keeping my eye on that one. Many people were picking Maryland as the trendy dark horse in the conference this year, and it will be interesting to see if they can respond with their backs against the wall. If that one were in College Park, I would take the Terps.

Duke MSU sure lost its luster. Still hope Sparty wins one for the conference. Izzo never rattled by early season losses anyway --uses them to keep his team hungry.

Sparty 2-12 with several wide open looks. Ugly shooting. Only down by 7
