LAS VEGAS (AP) - Former Indiana coach Bob Knight says he doesn’t think that the Big Ten deserves seven teams in the NCAA tournament.

Knight told sportscaster Billy Packer on Sunday during a taping of “Survive and Advance” that he doesn’t think the Big Ten teams come close to being as good as teams from the Big East or ACC.

Packer says the quality of the Big East and ACC compared with the Big Ten is shown by the low seeds of the Big Ten teams.
