Big Time Sports: Conference tournament moving to familiar site as contenders close in on Michigan

Sports

INDIANAPOLIS – Big Ten teams continue to beat up on each other as they jockey for seeding in the upcoming conference tournament.

Illinois and Ohio State are both riding three-game winning streaks. They’ve closed the gap with Michigan for the top spot in the league. The Wolverines are shut down as the athletic department tries to contain a COVID-19 variant.

The return of Michigan State after battling its own coronavirus outbreak highlighted a slate of four games on Tuesday. Every game featured a team in the AP Top 25. The Big Ten and the Big 12 lead the way with six teams ranked.

A top ten match-up between Ohio State and Iowa on Thursday night in Iowa City tips-off eight straight days of games in the conference.

WTTV’s Chris Widlic and WXIN’s Dave Griffiths take a look back to Tuesday and a look ahead to the weekend’s game with the help of the Nexstar Nation in “Big Time Sports.”
