What Had Happened Was: 3/2/17
Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.
It appears the Northwestern men’s basketball team will be dancing in March. The Wildcats defeated Michigan, 67-65, at the buzzer on Wednesday for its 10th Big Ten win of the year and absolute pandemonium broke loose. This will be the first time the team gained an NCAA tournament berth, and the first time since the day Franklin D. Roosevelt was inaugurated in 1933 that the team has won 10 conference games.
