Northwestern (17-15, 4-14 Big Ten) plays Indiana (20-10, 12-6 Big Ten) in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
After upsetting No. 5 seed Minnesota, the 12th-seeded Northwestern Wildcats hopes to continue their wild run in the Big Ten Tournament against the 4th-seeded Hoosiers. On Wednesday, juniors Nia Coffey, Christen Inman and Ashley Deary led the team to an overtime victory over Wisconsin. The next day, Northwestern advanced past Rachel Banham and the Minnesota Golden Gophers with an 84-74 victory. The team flipped the season-long script against Minnesota with amazing rebounding and clutch shots in the fourth quarter.
The Wildcats have gone on this run without senior Maggie Lyon, who was ruled out of the first two games with a left foot injury. She is a game-time against Indiana. Northwestern lost 91-84 to Indiana in the regular season at Welsh-Ryan Arena after allowing 33 points in the fourth quarter. The Hoosiers have not played since the end of the regular season and will be playing a semi-home game in Indianapolis. The game will start 25 minutes after the conclusion of Iowa and Maryland's game at 11:00 a.m.
