2013 Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament: The Bracket

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Finally, the conference's 12 teams are locked into place. Who ya got?

Once Indiana and Michigan settled their craziness Monday night, the Big Ten's 12-team bracket was finally settled for this weekend's conference tournament in Chicago.

As expected for some time, the Hoosiers locked up the No. 1 seed, though the Wolverines' tumble to No. 5 without a first-round bye is incredible considering where John Beilien's team was just a couple weeks ago. Wisconsin, despite its never-say-easy ways, finished as a top-four team for the 12th straight season under Bo Ryan. Then there's Michigan State at No. 3 and Iowa at No. 6 to round out the top portion of the bracket.

A few first-day match-ups are pretty intriguing, especially No. 8 Illinois vs. No. 9 Minnesota for the right to play Indiana, and No. 6 Iowa vs. No. 11 Northwestern with Michigan State lying in wait.

So, who ya got?
