The NCAA Tournament bracket has been set, and now fans across the country research in their pursuit of creating the perfect bracket. One of the most popular research tools over the past several years has been Pomeroy Rankings more commonly known as "KenPom".

When checking out the 2021 Pomeroy Rankings, it becomes evident that the Big Ten has dominated college basketball this season.

The top team in the country all season long has been Gonzaga. This is for good reason, as they have not lost yet.

However, the Big Ten really takes over after that. Michigan and Illinois are ranked number two and three, respectively, in the Pomeroy Rankings. The Wolverines made it to the Semifinals in the Big Ten Tournament, losing to Ohio State. Illinois went all the way and won the tournament, defeating Ohio State in overtime.

Speaking of Ohio State, it ranks seventh in the Pomeroy Rankings. Ahead of them is Iowa, at No. 5. The Hawkeyes are an experienced team that features one of the most talented big men in the country, in Luka Garza.

Rounding out the top Big Ten representation in the Pomeroy Rankings is Wisconsin at No. 10 and Purdue at No. 13. It would not be surprising to see a couple Big Ten teams in the Final Four.
