NORTHWESTERN WON. NORTHWESTERN BEAT IOWA. THE NORTHWESTERN WILDCATS, AN 11TH-SEEDED TEAM THAT LOST BY 26 TO IOWA TWICE, WON A DAMN BIG TEN TOURNAMENT GAME AGAINST IOWA

I TOLD Y'ALL! I TOLD Y'ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

I DON'T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT TRANSITIVE PROPERTIES, Y'ALL. WE WON THE MORE IMPORTANT GAME.

THE MARCH TO THE NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP WINS NOW. A JOURNEY OF 10,000 MILES BEGINS WITH ONE STEP. AND CHRIS COLLINS AND CREW JUST TOOK THAT STEP TONIGHT. I'M ABOUT TO RIP MY BRAIN OUT OF MY SKULL WHILE SITTING ON PRESS ROW AT THE BARCLAYS CENTER.

EVERYTHING WENT RIGHT! EVERYTHING WENT RIGHT! I MEAN, DAVE SOBOLEWSKI HAD TWO THREES! HE HAD TWO THREES IN 18 CONFERENCE GAMES! HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN!

NORTHWESTERN SHOT ABOVE 50 PERCENT! I AIN'T EVEN KNOW THAT WAS LEGAL

TRE DEMPS HAD 20 POINTS, EXCLUSIVELY ON THREE-POINTERS TAKEN 45 FEET AWAY WITH -7 SECONDS ON THE SHOT CLOCK. I KNOW THAT'S NOT TRUE, BUT IT FELT LIKE IT.

NORTHWESTERN IS PLAYING ON THE SECOND DAY OF THEBIG TEN TOURNAMENT FOR ONLY THE SECOND TIME SINCE I STARTED FOLLOWING. THIS IS DESTINY, Y'ALL, AND TONIGHT IS ABOUT DRINKING AND TURNING COMMENTS PURPLE

GO CATS
