Hello, Northwestern friends! T

There's a chance that this is the last basketball game thread this year. In fact, it's likely. So let's enjoy each other's presence: hold each other close, and promise to remember each other in September.

But there's also a chance for greatness: a chance Northwestern beats Iowa, beats whoever else comes in its path, and WINS THE DAMN BIG TEN TOURNAMENT. 12th-seeded Purdue was a couple o' points away from knocking off Ohio State earlier, so anything is possible. Plus: Morgan Freeman wouldn't lie to us.

I'm sitting courtside at the Atlantic 10 Tournament in Brooklynm, but I can assure you: everybody behind me will know that I'm paying significantly more attention to a game in Indiana. I will not be able to join in on beer, but I will have snacks.

And GO CATS, Y'ALL!

(OR AT LEAST LET'S NOT LOSE BY 26 THIS TIME, OKAY?!?!?!! PLEASE?!?!?!
