No. 6-4

12-5. . 3-2. 6. . Michigan Wolverines. . . . 485

The Wolverines have been up and down this season. After an upset of #18 Ohio State, Michigan lost to #14 Indiana and Minnesota. They are coming off a 24-point win against Wisconsin, however. Michigan can make a move with winnable games against Nebraska and Rutgers. Both of those games, however, are on the road.

. 5. 852. 3-2. . Minnesota Golden Gophers. . . . 13-3

After back-to-back losses against #2 Iowa and Maryland, Minnesota rebounded with back-to-back wins against Michigan and Nebraska. The Gophers are playing well , considering head coach Dawn Plitzuweit relies on first- and second-year students to score. Their game against the #16 Hoosiers is a measuring stick game for the Gophers.

. 4-2. . . 4. Nebraska Cornhuskers. 12-5. . . 488

The Cornhuskers have been one of the pleasant surprises in the conference this season. Senior center Alexis Markowski is a double-double machine, averaging over 17 points and 10 rebounds this season. They had a tough loss to a scrappy Minnesota team on Sunday and look to rebound against Michigan on Wednesday evening. Markowski's presence in the middle makes them a threat against any team in the Big Ten when she stays out of foul trouble.
