The Northwestern Wildcats have never made it to the NCAA tournament. This may be their best chance this year, with four games remaining, the boys in purple are 16-10, 6-8 in the Big Ten, and sit in seventh in the Big Ten league standings. They need to win 2/4 of their remaining games, and winning three will almost certainly get them into the Big Dance. The Cats should win their two remaining road games at Iowa and Penn State, but they probably will lose their two remaining home games against Michigan and Ohio State. If they can somehow pull out a win against the Wolverines or Buckeyes they should receive a tournament bid, which as previously stated will be their first. Personally, I am a diehard Ohio State fan, but I wouldn’t mind taking a loss in Evanston next week if the Cats would be assured of their first tournament appearance in school history. Let’s go Cats!! Paint the town Purple!!
