Michigan and Northwestern tip off at 8 p.m. (eastern) tonight in Evanston for what’s being billed as one of the biggest basketball games in Northwestern history. A win for the Wildcats would push them tantalizingly close to their first even NCAA tournament berth while a win for the Wolverines would keep them in the thick of the Big Ten championship race. The Big Ten Network has the broadcast with Dave Revsine and Shon Morris on the call.

Pre-Game Reading

  • MGoTweeter

  • davis104

    Morgan’s head fouled curletti’s elbow

    Trying to provoke Morgan is Northwestern’s OT offense.

  • Joe

  • bones

    bacari eyeballing stu.  ha

  • DB

    Huge No! No! Yes! 3 from Stu

  • Wayman Britt

    Time to hit free throws

  • jemblue

    By the way, it’s worth noting that Jordan Morgan is still playing with 2 minutes left in OT.  Once again Beilein’s calculated gamble (sitting him with 2 personals in the first half) appears to be working out.

    • DB

       The only reason they are in overtime is because Blake played 15 minutes

    • Morgan had no fouls in the 2nd half, which flies in the face of your argument. He can play without picking up fouls, no need to sit him the entire 1st half. 

      • jemblue

        In the first half, the officials were calling everything a foul.  If he’d stayed out there he’d have gotten more.  After halftime they adjusted they way they called the game, as they often do.  But if Beilein had waited until halftime for that adjustment, it might have been too late for Morgan.

  • bones

    i kinda feel sorry for the cats.  

  • Mattski

    HmHmHmHmHm!!!

  • MGoTweeter

    nice carmody sporting the massive pit stains

  • rlcBlue

    Ugh, Timmy.

  • Matt Peck

    Tim….take notes

  • rlcBlue

    Ugh, Trey.

    Can we get the ball to Novak, please?

  • davis104

    Would an NIT chant be mean?

  • DB

    God, I hope the beat Ohio.

  • jemblue

    Tim needs to get in the gym tomorrow and shoot a couple hundred FTs.

  • davis104

    PHEW!

  • MGoTweeter

    well did not deserve to win this one for most of the game but neither did NW.  Michigan made the plays in overtime though and got a big win.  Keep it going Blue!

  • Fvsdevin

    Big win here for us.  If you had told me 3/4 the way through this game that we’d finish with 67 points, I would have laughed at you.  

    • Mattski

      Agree. I was laughing at the score myself. About the margin we should have won by, though. . . 

  • Mattski

    21-7, 11-4 in the B1G–not too shabby. Stayed on pace for the conference championship and got through what was likely the toughest team left on the sked. Can they win out and get a 2 seed in the NCAA tourney? 

  • RikSmits

    just remember people – Stack Nouglass
