No. 7 seed Northwestern (22-11, Big Ten 12-8) took down No. 10 seed Boise State (24-10, Mountain West 13-5) 75-67 in Sacramento on Thursday for the men’s basketball NCAA Round of 64. After a short-lived run in the Big Ten Tournament last week, the Cats improved their game with more successful 3-pointers and a stronger defense, earning them a spot in the second round Saturday. This was the Wildcats’ second appearance at March Madness in program history.
