Ohio State basketball: Insights from 2014 preseason KenPom rankings - Land-Grant Holy Land

If KenPom's preseason rankings are accurate, the Big Ten is going to be absolutely stacked this season. Every single team in the conference is projected to finish in the top 103 (there are 351 teams in D1 hoops), and a whopping 11 of them are projected in the Top 40, far more than any other conference (the closest, the Big 12, has seven).

Joining Wisconsin, Michigan State and Ohio State near the top of the rankings are Michigan (15), Indiana (26), Iowa (32), Maryland (33), Nebraska (34) Minnesota (37), Illinois (38) and Purdue (40). Rutgers brings up the rear at 103. Just like like the last few years, the Big Ten projects to be a total dogfight, even with Wisconsin a heavy favorite.

READ THAT AGAIN.
