That became official today when Penn State knocked off Minnesota and Maryland beat Nebraska.
Indiana officially became the No. 7 seed Saturday when Purdue beat Illinois. That left IU and the Illini in a tie for seventh but the Hoosiers held the tie-breaker by beating Illinois in their only meeting this season.
If the Hoosiers (19-12, 9-9 Big Ten) get past Northwestern they would play Maryland on Friday in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals. That game would also be at 6:30 p.m. ET but would be played on the Big Ten Network.
