NCAA Basketball: Schools with the Most Big Ten Tournament Titles
The Big Ten is really late to the Conference Tournament party (despite what the huge, gaudy trophy above might suggest).
Even though it’s been around, in one form or another, since (whoa) 1899, the conference finally buckled (I guess) into having a season-concluding Big Ten Tournament with the 1997-98 season.
Surely the reasons are financial – and how (and why) did the conference hold out for so long?
Anyway, in the 18 years (including this one) of Big Ten Tourneys, seven different schools have won the Finals, led by Ohio State with five titles.
Currently, there are 14 schools in the Big Ten, 10 of which have been members since 1948-49 or earlier.
And, as we’ve been covering with each conference tournament post, where’s Big Ten HQ? It’s in Rosemont, Illinois.Follow @VinGetz
UPDATED LIST: To include 2014-15’s winner Wisconsin (the Badgers’ third).
