12. Nebraska (15-13, 5-12)
It looks like the Huskers will have to win at least two of their final three games — and get some help — to avoid the play-in round of the Big Ten Tournament. Thanks to tiebreakers, Nebraska (currently 11th in the conference) likely wouldn’t rise above a No. 12 seed with less than two victories. A stretch of games that at one time looked like a potential boon to a team bidding for a NCAA Tournament spot has now become a march against long odds just to finish in the top 10 of the Big Ten standings.
