Your picks for the Final Four?

Before everything is final even? I'm not sure I can do that. You have a Big Ten title that could be shared by multiple teams or be Indiana's outright. There are still too many possibilities! But just for fun I'm going to say Indiana, Oklahoma State, Duke and Ohio State.
