In Part 4 of Beyond The Arc's 7-part college basketball preview, Bryan and Steve talk about the Big Ten storylines, teams and players that could keep the conference on top as the premier college basketball conference.

Our hosts will look back at the amazing 2012-13 Big Ten season that saw 4 teams finish the season in the AP Top 10, 4 teams reach the Sweet 16, 1 team reach the national championship game, and 2 of 4 first-round NBA draft picks selected in the top 4 as underclassmen.

As the 2013-14 season begins, all eyes will be on the state of Michigan where two of the top teams in the country reside. Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans and John Beilein's Michigan Wolverines have the talent and experience to make deep runs in the NCAA tournament and matchup for an epic showdown that could determine the Big Ten champion.  How will their seasons unfold?

Other storylines that will be discussed include: expectations for Aaron Craft and Ohio State in the shadow of Michigan and Michigan State, how Indiana replaces four 1,000 point scorers who changed the culture of the program, whether Iowa is ready to return to the NCAA tournament, and does the Big Ten have more than 5 teams strong enough to make the tournament in March.
