Obviously this news is from a few hours ago, but Michigan State’s win over Wisconsin tonight means that regardless of Sunday’s result, Indiana will be the No. 1 seed in the Big Ten Tournament and play its quarterfinal game Friday at noon eastern at the United Center in Chicago against the winner of the game between the No. 8 and No. 9 seed.
By virtue of being 2-0 against Michigan State and the fact that Ohio State and Michigan are both 1-1 against Michigan State, the Hoosiers would own any tiebreaker that would involve the Spartans, and regardless of Sunday’s result, record against Michigan State will effectively be the deciding factor in tiebreakers. Indiana is 1-1 against Ohio State and Michigan and Ohio State are 1-1 against each other, if IU, OSU, Michigan and Michigan State were all tied, IU would have the best record against the group because of its two wins against Michigan State. If MSU would lose its game Sunday, it would still break any ties between IU, Michigan and Ohio State because the next tiebreaker is record against the next highest team outside the first-place tie.
