Four days ago, Northwestern reached historic heights by winning its 20th regular season game for the first time in program history. The Wildcats also ended the regular season on a three-game winning streak, another first for the program.
But that's all in the rearview mirror. The slate's been wiped clean for the postseason, which Northwestern begins against the Michigan Wolverines, a familiar foe that beat the Wildcats in Ann Arbor just a few weeks back.
Here's all the pregame information you need to get ready for the matchup:

Here's the bracket for the entire tournament. Northwestern-Michigan is the first game of the day and will be followed by Illinois-Iowa. Later tonight, Penn State plays Ohio State and Nebraska takes on Wisconsin.
