Five teams were within two games of each other for the top spot in the final Big Ten regular season standings -- Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan State, Michigan and Wisconsin. The Hoosiers took the regular season title, but it was the Buckeyes who won the conference tournament. The 2013-14 season looks to be just as competitive, as all but Indiana are ranked in the The AP preseason Top 25. Which team will come out on top this time around?

He might be playing for the Detroit Pistons, but that doesn't mean Peyton Siva has forgotten about his old team. On Tuesday, Siva told ESPN.com that the Louisville Cardinals "really aren't missing anything" and will be "better" and "more talented" than the group that claimed the 2012-13 NCAA title. How do the Cardinals stack up against the presumed contenders in 2013-14? Click on the logos below to set your rankings!

Any day with college basketball on television is a good thing. A day when college basketball is always on television is a great thing. With the march to the Final Four in Indianapolis underway (and the march to San Antonio for the women), ESPN is showing nothing but basketball Tuesday -- 12 games in 24 hours. And that doesn't even include the games going on ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN360.com and ESPN Mobile. At this point, you've already missed the start of class (and Cal State Fullerton upsetting UCLA) but there's still time to salvage the day.

I love the 24 hour marathon -- took Tuesday off from work. Good thing the Monday Night Fooball game is so terrible ... so I can get a nap in after work before the marathon tipoff.
