NCAA Basketball: Alabama at Penn State Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Michigan State Spartans stand atop the Big Ten at 1-0.

Twelve teams are tied for second.

Northwestern is 14th at 0-1.

SPARTANS. BASKETCATS. TONIGHT!

Ohio State is talented but still flawed.

We’ll preview some of the upcoming games as well, including and especially Braggin’ Rights between Illinois and Miznoz.
