Big Ten Tournament 2012: Schedule And Bracket For Day Two

With both the Illinois Fighting Illini and Northwestern Wildcats eliminated from the Big Ten Conference Tournament, Chicago no longer has a particularly local representative, but the tournament carries on nonetheless. After a day full of games on Thursday, things continue with a full slate of games on Friday as the quarterfinals are played out.

For the first time, the top four teams in the Big Ten will play after receiving byes from the first round. Here's the schedule for Friday's games (and the Big Ten bracket can be found here):

11:00 p.m. CST: No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 9 Iowa

1:30 p.m. CST: No. 4 Wisconsin vs. No. 5 Indiana

5:30 p.m. CST: No. 2 Michigan vs. No. 10 Minnesota

8:00 p.m. CST: No. 3 Ohio State vs. No. 6 Purdue

The more anticipated games are likely Wisconsin-Indiana and Ohio State-Purdue given the increased likeliness for competitive play, but both Iowa and Minnesota do retain some upset potential. It'll be interesting to see how the tournament plays out in one of this year's most talented conferences.
