Big Ten Tournament Kicks Off Thursday Night

Last updated on Thursday, March 12, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Big Ten Tournament gets underway this afternoon at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The Indiana Hoosiers play in the final game this afternoon as they take on the Penn State Nittany Lions.

The Hoosiers are trying to extend the worst season in school history. They enter the postseason with a 6-and-24 record after winning just one of their 18 conference games.

The Nittany Lions are the number-six seed and are 21-and-10. A win today probably assures Penn State a berth in next week's NCAA tournament.

The winner of today's game will face number-three seed Purdue in the quarterfinals on Friday night.
