This is it for Northwestern men’s basketball.
It’s been a tumultuous 2019-20 season to say the least, but there is still everything to play for with the Big Ten Tournament kicking off in Indianapolis Wednesday evening. No one’s expecting the Wildcats to advance to the next day of action, and they’ll certainly have their hands full against a Minnesota squad that has handedly beaten them twice this season.
NU has a bit of momentum coming off its biggest win of the season, while the Gophers have been on a bit of a slide recently having lost six of their last eight contests to close the season.
