In case you haven’t been following closely, the Northwestern Wildcats are going to the NCAA tournament for the first time in the history of the program.Northwestern Wildcats

There are still four weeks left before Selection Sunday and Northwestern has at least seven games to play in that time frame, but I don’t even think Northwestern is capable of Northwesterning this. On Sunday evening, while most were settling in to watch the Grammys, the Wildcats went into Madison and knocked off No. 7 Wisconsin, 66-59, despite playing without their leading scorer, Scottie Lindsey.

Chris Collins’ club now has a trio of top 35 wins, five more top 100 wins and no losses outside the top 70. Four of their top 100 wins are true road wins while a fifth came over Dayton on a neutral court. Four of their last six regular season games come at home, including games against Maryland and Purdue.

With those seven games to play, I don’t see how they can lose out (which would be the only way to put their Tourney bid in jeopardy).

I for one, cannot wait to watch Northwestern in the tournament this year. A possible Cinderella team?
