Top seeded Wisconsin will face the 10th seeded Fighting Illini tomorrow in the Big Ten conference championship.
Illinois, smokin' hot off a win over Minnesota, is just a win away from earning an automatic invite to the big dance and slamming the door in OSU's face. While you optimist-types out there aren't ready to fill out your N.I.T. brackets until after tomorrow's selection show, it's hard to believe that the selection committee would leave room for the Bucks after letting a 16-18 team from the Big Ten sneak in.
No need to lose sleep tonight, however, as Wisconsin has made it very clear down the stretch that it is the class of the conference, winning their last nine games.
