Big Ten Tournament bracket: Full TV schedule, scores, results for 2021 basketball tournament



What a year a difference makes for Juwan Howard.

A season after he led the Wolverines to a 19-12 record (10-10 Big Ten) as a first-year coach, he turned around in Year 2 and led his alma mater to a 19-3 record (14-3 Big Ten). As a result, Michigan earned the conference’s regular-season title — its first since 2014 — and the top seed in the Big Ten Tournament, not to mention a likely 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Yet, as incredible as Michigan has been this season, there still are teams that could legitimately challenge the Wolverines for Big Ten supremacy. The most likely candidate is No. 2 seed Illinois, which on March 2 destroyed the Wolverines 76-53 to delay their coronation as regular-season champion.

Even teams such as Iowa, Purdue, Ohio State and Wisconsin have reason to believe they can challenge to win the conference tournament. It truly is an embarrassment of riches in the Big Ten, which makes its season-ending tournament one of the most fascinating in college basketball.

With that, here’s the complete breakdown of the 2021 Big Ten Tournament, from brackets to TV information and schedules:
