The Big Ten 2013 championship live schedule brings the final game to the conference on Sunday, just several hours before Selection Sunday goes down on CBS. This year's conference finals doesn't include Indiana or either Michigan squad as one might expect. Instead, it'll be Wisconsin vs. Ohio State live streaming and televised for fans to watch, courtesy of the CBS networks.
According to WSAU.com on March 17, this could be the fifth Big Ten Conference Tournament title for the Buckeyes, which would be a league-leading accomplishment. To get here, the #2 seed overall in the tournament knocked off #3 seed Michigan State on Saturday, 61-58. Meanwhile, #4 seed Wisconsin defeated #1 seed Indiana in the upset yesterday, 68-56. Now these two teams will clash as the NCAA tournament seeds and regional positions await them later in the day. Depending how the game plays out, it could finish mere moments before the March Madness brackets are unveiled, or even delay the start of the program if several overtime sessions occur.
According to ESPN.com, Wisconsin is looking to make history today by being the first team in Big Ten Tournament play to defeat the top two teams en route to the championship. Wisconsin is currently ranked #22 in all of the land, with coach Bo Ryan giving plenty of praise to his team for their recent efforts:
"I just again can't tell you how proud I am of the defensive effort on a very good offensive team. Again, it's nice to be able to play in a championship game. I know our guys are looking forward to that, and we'll see what happens in the next game."
Game time is set for approximately 3:10 p.m. EST on CBS for televised coverage. Additionally, the game is scheduled to be live streaming here at the CBS Sports website. In Roanoke, viewers can check out local CBS affiliate WDBJ 7 to watch the latest college basketball conference title game.
