Hello, Northwestern friends!
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: Go back and read the game thread I wrote yesterday, and you'll notice that I started it in exactly identical fashion. That's because yesterday, No. 11 Northwestern came in and beat the No. 6 Iowa Hawkeyes, which seemed, well, improbable. However, it happened, and thus I remain steadfast in my belief that Northwestern will WIN THE ENTIRE DAMN BIG TEN TOURNAMENT. One game at a time, and we can go dancing.
I made my point the other day: we just beat Iowa, who beat Northwestern by 26 twice, and Michigan State beat Northwestern by *just* 14 and 15. They've been resting during their bye while Northwestern has been working their asses off. And they have nothing to play for. We should wipe the damn floor with them.
AND PLUS, MORGAN FREEMAN WOULDN'T LIE TO US!!!!!
LET'S DO THIS: GO CATS!
