Bryce Drew sticks up for Matthew Fisher-Davis after loss

Bryce Drew sticks up for Matthew Fisher-Davis after loss

You see now how it works. Now that we are here, we want to do everything we can to stay here. The lead changes hands six times in the final 96 seconds. Second, Vanderbilt can shoot the three-pointer better than most teams in the country, and Northwestern hasn't been the best at defending it. The witnesses are pretty much hoping to die. That's it. That's all. In a 20,000-seat arena, "Let's Go 'Cats!" chants rang out throughout the game. The speaker sits nearest the locker of fifth-year senior Sanjay Lumpkin, and Sanjay the de-facto deejay chose Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's "Still D.R.E." as the first song on the playlist following the first NCAA tournament win, in the first NCAA tournament trip in Northwestern history-a 68-66 victory over Vanderbilt in an 8-9 seed game on Thursday afternoon.

"He made a mistake at the end, yeah, I mean I'm not sure what happened". It's a sentence I never thought I'd write, and one you probably never thought you'd read.

Trailing by 15 with 13 minutes remaining, Fisher-Davis hit back-to-back 3's to cut the Northwestern lead to only 3 points. Fan Bob Swee, who has followed the team for several decades, watched the team practice Wednesday and said being a fan of the Northwestern basketball program has been "tiring, it's been exhausting".

"I feel badly for Fisher-Davis", Collins said. "I started talking to him about my vision, what I wanted for this program, how I needed guys". So, highs and lows, highs and lows, and they fouled B-Mac with, I think, 15 on the clock. "We're not in that position without him". We were down one.

The Northwestern Wildcats (23-11) are coming from a 76-48 loss to the Wisconsin Badgers in which Scottie Lindsey scored 16 points in 5-for-10 shooting from the field and 5-for-6 from the free throw line.

Also, I'll take Mr. C over Kim Kardashian's kid any day. "Certainly, I was surprised".

Force mistakes. Northwestern's shot selection took a turn for the worse as frustrations - and Illinois' lead - mounted. "And there's nothing like March Madness".

Except for that, he might have spent the remainder of his days wincing every so often because of his own mistake, which he volunteered in conversation. Yet it was off the mark, bouncing out-of-bounds and giving the ball to Northwestern with just over a second left. Skelly failed to do it, Skelly said.

"We all love each other to death".

It's both of those, yes. Normally, this would be prudent.

Northwestern has been known to struggle in late-game situations, but as the season has gone on, they've continued to improve.

"I didn't know the score, to be honest", Fisher-Davis conceded to ESPN. "I have no clue".

SALT LAKE CITY - Bryant McIntosh has had his share of masterful performances in his 99-game career at Northwestern. They blocked shooters from driving in to the lane, and kept them as far off of the three-point line as they could.

That could come in handy Saturday, when the eighth-seeded Wildcats challenge the top-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs in a second-round West Region game.

It got a whole helping of March, right in its first-ever classroom.
