Big Ten's Women's Basketball Power Rankings: Indiana, Iowa, and Ohio State battle it out for regular season title.

The #2 Buckeyes, #14 Hoosiers, and #4 Hawkeyes are in a three-way battle for first place in the Big Ten and the number one seed in the Big Ten Tournament. Indiana's upset loss to Illinois, however, likely cost them the regular season title and the opportunity to be the #1 seed in the Big Ten Tournament.

No. 6-4

No. 6 Maryland Terrapins (15-10, 7-7)

Maryland is another team in that six to seven conference win range. However, they are playing fantastic basketball. Shyanne Sellars is playing at a high level, and the Terps are winning as a result. They have #2 Ohio State and #14 Indiana left on their schedule but could still be a dangerous team in the Big Ten tournament.

No. 5 Michigan State Spartans (18-7, 9-6)

Michigan State is an interesting team. They've played better of late, including a four-point win against rival Michigan. The Spartans don't have a spectacular resume; they win the games they should win and lose against better teams. That does not bode well if they are trying to upset a team in the conference tournament.

No. 4 Nebraska Cornhuskers (18-9, 10-6)

After #2 Ohio State blew their doors off in Columbus, the Cornhuskers got back on track against Purdue and Northwestern. With two winnable games left on the schedule, the 'Huskers could solidify the fourth seed in the Big Ten tournament.
