2015 Big Ten Tournament Bracket

New, 27 comments

Regular season play has concluded in the Big Ten, here's what the conference tournament bracket looks like.

After a wild regular season, the 2015 Big Ten Tournament will tip-off in Chicago this week and, for the first time ever, will be featuring 14 member institutions. As expected, Frank Kaminsky and No. 6 Wisconsin dominated league play this year and have received a coveted double-bye; No. 10 Maryland, Michigan State, and Purdue earned the other three.

The action will begin at 3:30pm CT on Wednesday afternoon as Nebraska faces Penn State; that will be followed by Minnesota and Rutgers at 7:00pm CT.

This will be the 18th tournament in Big Ten Conference history; the first was played in 1998. This will be the 9th time the the tournament has been held at the United Center in Chicago--which makes it the event's most frequent host. Ohio State and Michigan State have both won a conference-leading four tournament titles while Illinois and Iowa follow suit with two each.
