2021 B1G MEN’S CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Big Ten Men’s Championships launch tonight with Tuesday relay night, featuring the 200 medley and 800 free relays.

With diving already concluded, Ohio State gets a 100-point headstart over Indiana, while those two teams, and Purdue, were the only programs to score 100 points or more with their divers.

In the 200 medley relay, a whopping eight teams have been 1:26 this year, led by Purdue at 1:26.00. That race should be a huge battle. Meanwhile, no teams have raced the 800 free relay yet this season, but Michigan looks to have the deepest mid-distance free group in the Big Ten right now, and they’ll be the favorites.
