Schedule and resultsEdit

The 2018 Big Ten Tournament will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City.[6] Due to the Big East's use of that venue for their conference tournament, the Big Ten Tournament will take place one week earlier than usual, ending the week before Selection Sunday.[7] This could result in teams having nearly two weeks off before the NCAA Tournament.[7] As a result, it is anticipated that the Big Ten regular season will begin in mid-December.[8] Coaches have requested that no Big Ten game be scheduled between Christmas and New Year's Day, accordingly each team will play two conference games in early December before finishing non-conference play.[8]
