. . . The Wildcats dropped the critical first game in the Big Ten Tournament, failing to execute down the stretch and establish much rhythm offensively in an overtime loss. A loss that leaves us outside the NCAA Tournament it would seem.
The big day is finally here. Big Ten Tournament is starting today and Northwestern faces a no-getting-around-it must-win against Minnesota. To prepare for the Gophers, I chatted with From the Barn to get the Minnesota perspective on today’s game.
It was two different games for Northwestern against Minnesota this season. In one, the Gophers absolutely took it to the Wildcats. In the other, it was Northwestern’s turn. How Minnesota attacks the defense might determine how Northwestern fares the third time around.
