The Big Ten Basketball Extravaganza
The Big Ten Conference is renowned for its competitiveness, and last season was no exception. It sent a whopping eight teams to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, more than any other conference. With such a strong track record, you can expect nothing short of excellence in this year’s games.
Key Matchups to Look Forward To
- Jersey Jam Tip-Off: The action kicks off on November 6, 2023, at 7 p.m. ET as the Rutgers Scarlet Knights face the Princeton Tigers in the inaugural ‘Jersey Jam’ from CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, N.J. It’s a thrilling start to the season that you won’t want to miss.
- Doubleheader on December 5: Mark your calendars for December 5 as the Michigan State Spartans host the Wisconsin Badgers at 7 p.m. ET, followed by the Indiana Hoosiers visiting the Michigan Wolverines at 9 p.m. ET. This doubleheader promises back-to-back excitement.
- High-Stakes Interconference Battle: On December 16, the 2022-23 Big Ten champion Purdue Boilermakers, led by returning senior Zach Edey – the 2023 consensus National Player of the Year – will host the Arizona Wildcats at 4:30 p.m. ET. This interconference matchup features two Top 10 teams from last season, making it a must-watch clash.

Incoming Freshmen and Transfers
The Big Ten is teeming with talent with returning stars, incoming freshmen and transfers. Last season, the conference boasted four AP All-Americans, including Purdue’s returning senior sensation Zach Edey, who swept six major National Player of the Year Awards.
Edey, standing tall at 7’4″, returns to lead the Boilermakers after averaging over 22 points and 12 rebounds per game last season. He’s a force to be reckoned with, and his matchup against Illinois guard Terrence Shannon Jr., another 2022-23 First-Team All-Big Ten player, on March 5 at 7 p.m. ET exclusively on Peacock is sure to be a highlight of the season.
Exciting young talent is also on the horizon with incoming freshmen like Indiana’s Mackenzie Mgbako and Michigan State’s dynamic duo, Xavier Booker and Jeremy Fears, Jr. These 2023 High School All-Americans are set to make their mark on the college basketball scene.
Additionally, keep an eye on transfers like Indiana center Kel’el Ware (No. 2) and Penn State guard Ace Baldwin (No. 18), who were both ranked in the Top 20 student-athletes in this off-season’s transfer portal, adding even more depth to the Big Ten.
