Despite Michigan's run to the national championship game, it was a disappointing postseason performance for the Big Ten. Will that change in 2018-19?

The top programs are looking ahead to their expected recruiting needs for 2019. Here's what they're targeting.
- Rockets take USC's Melton, trade for Purdue's Edwards
- UNC-Michigan highlights ACC/Big Ten clashes
- Edwards returns to Purdue, skips NBA draft
- Brees nabs Wooden jersey for Purdue to display
The Houston Rockets added USC guard De'Anthony Melton with the 46th pick in the NBA draft following a season where he was ruled ineligible because of an extra benefits scandal.
After a dismal NCAA tournament showing in 2017-18, the Big Ten can expect a better haul next season. Plus, Arizona returns to the field after an impressive recruiting rebuild.
Michigan, the 2017-18 national runner-up, will host North Carolina on Nov. 28 as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Other matchups include Michigan State at Louisville and Indiana at Duke on Nov. 27.
Carsen Edwards, who averaged a team-high 18.5 points per game last season, will skip the NBA draft and return to Purdue for his junior season.
Drew Brees said he paid $264,000 in mid-May to win a late-hour bidding war for a 1930s-era Purdue jersey worn by coaching legend John Wooden. The Saints QB said the jersey will go on display at Mackey Arena.
Dartmouth grad transfer Evan Boudreaux will play his final two seasons of basketball at Purdue.
Chris Beard has done it to Purdue again.
Although the NCAA announced Friday that Isaac Haas could compete with an approved elbow brace and left the final decision with Purdue, coach Matt Painter is still not convinced Haas is fit to play.
The big names come out to play -- Villanova, Duke, Kansas -- with a spot in the Elite Eight on the line. Will the top seeds advance, or will lower seeds again bust brackets?
Purdue's Isaac Haas, who suffered a fractured elbow in the first round of the NCAA tournament, is unlikely to return for the Boilermakers' Sweet 16 game vs. Texas Tech.
What happened in the first two rounds? It was crazy, but we're moving on because the Sweet 16 has arrived. The blue bloods are here, but so are the wild cards, including two(!) 11-seeds. Enjoy the games, but here's what's going to happen this weekend.
OK, let's get a few things straight: A revolution is not happening in college basketball. Nor is what is happening in this NCAA tournament unprecedented. We've had crazier tournaments. What isn't crazy is The Bilastrator's order of the 16 remaining teams.
So your bracket is busted, your original champion is already out of the tournament and you need someone new to follow. We've done the research for you already. All you have to do now is pick the team that best fits your style.
Purdue's sports medicine program has asked a group of mechanical engineers on campus to design an NCAA-approved brace for Boilermakers center Isaac Haas, according to the Lafayette Journal & Courier.
Purdue coach Matt Painter said Isaac Haas, who fractured his elbow in the Boilermakers' NCAA tournament win over Cal State Fullerton, isn't expected to play again this season, even if a brace is approved.
Let's try this again. It's not exactly the 16 teams we expected, but it's time to take a good look and put them in the proper order. The top teams aren't that shocking, but then the surprises start.
Welcome to the Sweet 16, Sister Jean. Loyola-Chicago's Cinderella story is just one delightful development in this year's field. Half the 1-seeds are gone, and there's no telling who has the upper hand to reach the Final Four.
The field has been trimmed. Only 16 are left standing. It's time to look at what they did to get here and, more importantly, what they need to do if they hope to keep moving along in March.
Purdue center Isaac Haas isn't ready to give up on his final college season two days after fracturing his elbow in a hard fall during the opening round of the NCAA tournament.
