Northwestern Despite Their Rout Loss Gets Ready To Make History

March 12, 2017

Though Wisconsin pounded them in the Big Ten Tournament semi-finals yesterday, today will be an historic great day for Northwestern basketball as they will officially be selected for the NCAA Basketball Tournament for the first time in school history.

Thus within a span of four months and ten days, Chicago sports will have been rewarded with the Cubs’ first World Series win in 108 years and Northwestern gaining entry to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in the 79 year history of the event which began in 1939.

Northwestern is projected to be an 8 or 9 seed and if that is the case, almost certainly will face a regional one seed if they win in a first ever tournament game.

If N.W. does that and plays fairly well vs the one seed/high seed, it would cap an already very good season. Anything more is “heavy duty gravy.”

 

I will say Northwestern will be a nine seed and win vs the eight seed in their first ever NCAA Tournament game either Thursday or Friday.
