(WILX) -- Winning the Big Ten title used to be a huge deal in college basketball.
Now it's only big if the team goes on to a big NCAA tournament run which I think is too bad.
MSU was 30-5 and Big Ten champion last year-- but lost in the second game of the NCAA tournament and that's what people tend to remember.
I think it's too bad. It is so hard to win the Big Ten title especially with 14 teams in the league all of whom emphasize trying to win in basketball.
