Ranked: All 14 Big Ten Teams

All points are based off NCAA tournament scoring.

It may come as a shock to see Ohio State that far ahead of Penn State when the Nittany Lions are still the preseason national championship favorites. While PSU and tOSU are both projected to have the same number of Big Ten champs as NCAA champs -- five and three, respectively -- Ohio State is projected to score at least nine points out of everyone in its lineup, whereas Penn State has some pretty big holes in the first three weight classes.

Of course plenty can change between now and then, and teams with a preponderance of freshmen will likely do better than their current projections. Stay tuned as we will be updating the rankings throughout the season.
