Big Ten has talent and experience
Michigan and Indiana have opposite but intriguing freshman classes
Michigan is the team to watch in the Big Ten the next couple of years, as coach John Beilein has put together quite a talented roster of young ballers. With the sons of former NBA All-Stars Tim Hardaway and Glenn Robinson running fast breaks in 2012-13 and an in-state speedster possibly taking over for sophomore point guard Trey Burke in 2013-14, it will be a challenge for the rest of the conference to just keep up. But if the Wolverines want to win the conference title this season, they'll have to contend with a team garnering high preseason expectations that is chock full of veterans in Indiana. The Hoosiers return all five of their starters from last season and have added a possible first guy off the bench who could be just the spark Tom Crean's team needs to take care of business in the Big Ten.
