Now that there's been a little distance from the disappointing end, it might a little easier to reflect on the season as a whole.
Solid B, Overachieved in the regular season, didnt reach their potential in the tourney. They weren't a legit final four threat, so its not like it was a major let down, their ceiling was probably the sweet sixteen.

B, nothing more, nothing less. Get an A- for the non-conference season. A for the conference season. C for the Big Ten Tournament and an E for the NCAA tournament.

Sucks that they blew it in the first round of the NCAA tournament, but that can happen to just about anyone. Hell of a season to be able to win a share of the Big Ten title.
They did well most of the semester, then went out the night before final exams and got sh-t faced, flunking their final. Still had a high enough GPA to get a decent grade, but would have gotten an A with a good final.
Or wait, did this happen to me one time in college?
