Big Ten basketball makes Michigan-Michigan State a protected rivalry

Big Ten men's teams now play 18 conference games and the women's teams play 16.

The Big Ten announced on Thursday its increasing the conference schedule to 20 games in men's basketball and 18 in women's basketball, starting in the 2018-19 season. She took more than double the number of shots than her next closest teammate last season and she's able to score effectively from behind the 3-point line and at the free throw line.

The defensive was "very average most of the year", Pikiell said, and defensive rebounding really hurt Rutgers a season ago.

Holtmann has added a home-and-home with Cincinnati to open the 2018-19, and 2019-20 seasons.

Again, details regarding what regional means was not immediately available but it's a safe bet Michigan and Michigan State fans can expect to see Ohio State more often than Nebraska in the coming years. After all, if ACC and Big Ten coaches just got handed an additional road game in their league, why would the feel the need to schedule another roadie outside of conference play?

Under the new format, mens teams will play seven opponents twice in a given season and six opponents once with the in-state rivalries played twice every season. It was rare that Michigan would get to play home-and-home series with both Michigan State and Ohio State in the same year, even though those are two of the best rivalries in the entire conference.

According to details released by the conference this morning, each in-state rivlary (Michigan-Michigan State, Indiana-Purdue and Illinois-Northwestern) will play 12 times in a six year cycle.

MI begins its season November 11 at home against North Florida.

Her offensive game extends to the 3-point line and she can also defend the rim on defense.

After the Big Ten scheduled all three of their in-state rivalries to play only one time each during the 2017-18 season, this is probably the right move in terms of conference scheduling.
