For the first time since 2002, the Indiana University Hoosiers are claiming a share of the 2013 Big Ten Conference Title. Tuesday’s game will determine if IU receives its first overall championship title since 1993 as they take on Ohio State (#16) for the second time this season.

With their 73-60 win over the University of Iowa on Saturday, the team has a record of 13-3 in the Big Ten. Purdue beat Wisconsin and Michigan defeated Michigan State on Sunday, putting the closest teams to IU two games behind with only two conference games left for Big Ten teams.

This week’s match up against Ohio State also marks “Senior Night” for three seniors on the team: Jordan Hulls, Christian Watford, and Derek Elston. The game will be televised by ESPN with tip off starting at 9 p.m. After Tuesday’s game, the Hoosiers go back on the road, traveling to Ann Arbor for their last game of the regular season against Michigan on March 10.

The Hoosiers will travel to Chicago for the The Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament, scheduled for March 14-17, in the hopes of bringing home the tournament championship title.

    Claiming a share of the 2013 Big Ten Conference Title was impossible before this year or in any year after this year. Claiming a share of the Big Ten Conference Title – that’s possible any year.
