Rugged Big Ten hoops slate ready to begin
Patsies need not apply
Anyone wondering how tough the Big Ten will be this season should take a look at Iowa's plight.
The Hawkeyes (11-2) are flying high, having won six straight for their best start in 8 years. They've got a pair of emerging stars in Aaron White and Devyn Marble and their league opener is already sold out. And yet the Hawkeyes will probably be underdogs in each of their first three Big Ten games.
Iowa kicks off play in by far the nation's toughest league by hosting fifth-ranked Indiana (11-1) on New Year's Eve. The Hawkeyes then travel to second-ranked Michigan (12-0) before a relative breather — No. 19 Michigan State in Iowa City.
