The race for the conference title starts now.

The Wildcats are back in Indy and set to battle for a share of the Big Ten title over the next couple of days.

The women’s tournament is already underway at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and after Tuesday night’s results, Joe McKeown’s fifth-seeded squad is set to face 12-seed Illinois this afternoon with the hopes of redeeming itself from last year’s quick elimination.

The men’s team will face Minnesota at Lucas Oil in a 12 vs. 13 matchup where it can get revenge on the Golden Gophers, who knocked them out of the tournament a year ago. If the Wildcats can defeat Minnesota for the second time this season, they will earn their first postseason win since the 2016-2017 season.

Make sure you know how to watch both games and follow along with us below throughout the day!
