After losing each of the first ten years of the Big Ten / ACC Challenge, the B1G Conference has turned the table and won it for the third straight year. In the first year of a 12-team conference (and therefore a 12-game challenge), the B1G took 8 of the games and won the annual event 8-4. Below we have the results of all 12 games, as well as some stats for each. The B1G won 4 out of 6 games in each of the two days and entered Wednesday needing 3 wins to clinch. After winning the first 3 games of the day, the conference fans could rest easy and enjoy some solid basketball in the Wednesday late games.
