Looking ahead to next season, the Big Ten will be arguably the premier conference in college basketball. The 2014 NCAA tournament included six teams from this league, and I don't see anything changing next season. Wisconsin has the tools to repeat as a Final Four team. Ohio State, despite the loss of All-American Aaron Craft, could actually be better than in previous years. Nebraska, with much of Tim Miles' rotation back, is destined for another special season.
