Michigan, Purdue to meet for Big Ten title

As we sit just a few days away from Selection Sunday, teams all across the country are hoping to punch their ticket to the NCAA tournament with a conference tournament win. However, every year, there has been one team that we select that the Committee does not.

Baylor (Last 4 In)- Baylor's first game in the Big 12 Tournament is against West Virginia.

So, while the SEC bubble teams will be trying to win their own games to strengthen their resumes, they'll be rooting for some other power conference squads to lose early in their conference tourneys. Preseason favorite Kentucky (21-10) is the No. 4 seed, its eight league losses its most since 2008-09, the previous year of the short-lived Billy Gillispie era.

The dunk made it 66-48 and brought chants of "Tes-key!" from the MI fans - who showed up in droves for the first Big Ten Tournament played in NY.

The biggest new addition this year is an online streaming feature called Fast Break, which will be a live whip-around show that jumps around all 32 games on the frenetic first Thursday and Friday.

NKU Norse - The Norse lost in the Horizon League Tournament quarterfinals to Cleveland St. this past weekend. Each of your winning picks will be given points and with each tournament, the points increase with winning.

Junior forward Drew McDonald leads the team in scoring and rebounding with 16.9 points and 9.5 boards.

The Volunteers rallied to beat Georgia 66-61 on Saturday to claim a share of their first Southeastern Conference regular-season title since 2008. "That's what we're going to do this time around. I think their team's consistently getting better on the defensive end and really played hard defensively so we know it's going to be tough to go against them".

Oklahoma (11 seed)- Oklahoma is in trouble, as a game with Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Tournament could eliminate them from the tournament field. It starts with Simpson, the sophomore point guard harassing opponents' best ball-handlers. Those three games will be on TBS. Because of that match-up, this is must-win game for Alabama, or else they will have about a 50/50 shot to make the tournament.

The only remaining question is, where will UM play next week in the NCAA tournament?

Researchers at outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas cite one estimate that the productivity loss to employers totals $2.3 billion an hour in time their employees spend engaged with March Madness.

WKU Hilltoppers - The Hilltoppers are getting ready to play in this week's Conference USA Tournament in Frisco, Tx.

Michigan: The Wolverines will enter the NCAA Tournament on a nine-game winning streak. However, they'll be participating in the NIT this year and should be one of the tournament favorites.
