Major conferences still with plenty left to be decided

(AP)-College basketball has reached the final week of the regular season in all the major conferences.

A lot is still left to be decided.

While No. 6 Kentucky has wrapped up the SEC title and No. 8 Seton Hall has earned a share of the Big East, the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten and Pac-12 all will come down to the wire.

The Big Ten has a logjam at the top, with six teams within two games of one another.

No. 9 Maryland, which has a half-game lead over No. 23 Illinois at 13-5, has games against Rutgers and No. 25 Michigan this week. The Illini play No. 19 Ohio State on Thursday and No. 18 Iowa on Sunday.

The Buckeyes play No. 16 Michigan State on Sunday and the Spartans, who are a half-game back at 12-6, play No. 20 Penn State on Tuesday. The Nittany Lions get Northwestern on Saturday.

No. 24 Wisconsin, which was ranked this week for the first time all season, plays Northwestern and Indiana as it tries to make up the one-game deficit behind Maryland.

Good luck sorting all that out.

The ACC has four teams within 1 1/2 games of No. 10 Louisville’s lead at 15-4.
