The 2015 NBA Playoffs are in full swing with several great matchups on the slate.  It's a great time to be a basketball fan and the Big Ten will be well represented in this year's Playoffs as well.  As the 2nd Round ctoninues take a look at all the former Big Ten players that will be participating.

Overall, there were a total of 20 players featured in the 1st Round.  This is up 8 players from last season and though a lot of it depends on which teams qualify for the postseason, a good hunk of it also has to do with the fact that the Big Ten has been performing well on Draft night and getting more players into the NBA.  If the Big Ten continues to produce pro talent at this level, perhaps it will be up even more next year.

Here's the full list of the players in the 2nd Round.
