Last week, Andy Katz traveled to Illinois for the Big Ten men’s basketball media day. He talked to a handful of players and coaches to predict how the Big Ten season will play out in 2019-20, and you can hear all of those interviews and predictions in the latest March Madness 365 podcast:

In the podcast, Katz also compiled a preseason top 10 of Big Ten players. Both Maryland and Michigan State land two players on the list, while Iowa, Purdue, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio State, and Penn State all got one.
