Rounding the final turn and heading for the stretch...

Penn State 66 at OHIO STATE 72--PSU would like this game; Buckeyes need it. Picking the more motivated team.

Northwestern 69 at INDIANA 70--Could go either way, but I think the Hoosiers get one more Big 10/11 win this season.

Iowa 58 at MICHIGAN STATE 76--Hard to picture this one being close.

Minnesota 62 at ILLINOIS 68--Perilous times for Tubby's NCAA hopes.

Purdue 63 at MICHIGAN 66 (hope Phats is right on this one)--A fired-up Wolverine team + an ailing and inconsistent Hummel spells danger.

Iowa 58 at NORTHWESTERN 62--The death knell for ANY Hawkeye post-Big 10 tourney hopes?

Ohio State 63 at PURDUE 69--Not again THIS year, Buckeyes!

Indiana 60 at PENN STATE 68--Lions close on NCAA invite.

Michigan 63 at WISCONSIN 70--Bo isn't losing at Kohl again this year.

*Michigan State 60 at ILLINOIS 65--The plot thickens; the race tightens.
