Pound the Talk: Northwestern-Michigan basketball preview, Women’s Big Ten Tournament primer

It was a tough weekend. It can only go up from here!

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Michigan vs Northwestern Thomas Joseph-USA TODAY Sports

Northwestern broke our hearts this weekend. The men blew a late eight-point lead in Bloomington on Sunday night, and the women lost on a buzzer beater after Purdue grabbed an airball and stuck it back in. But with great sadness comes great opportunity (that's how the saying goes, right?). The women are headed to Indianapolis on Thursday, where they will face Iowa in the opening round of the Big Ten Tournament. The men, meanwhile, have two games left, both at home. Up first are the Michigan Wolverines, winners of five of their last six. Can the Wildcats turn things around on Wednesday night? Zach Pereles and Ian McCafferty discuss that and the NCAA Tournament possibilities for both the men and the women and take your Twitter questions as well.
