Did You See This? Richardson goes into stands

Nebraska's Brandon Richardon

Brandon Richardson Dives Into Railing

Brandon Richardson isn’t the first player to go into the expensive seats at Mackey Arena this season, and he might not be the last. In the first half of Nebraska’s game at Purdue on Wednesday night, Richardson went to save a ball near the sideline and had to jump the Huskers bench in the process. Once in the air, Richardson realized he had nowhere to land and finally came down on a railing. It looked painful, but luckily he was OK. Watch Richardson’s hard landing now. Earlier in the season, Terone Johnson went into the seats, as did Dru Antrhop.

Big Ten Geeks: Heartbreak in Evanston

It was looking like it would be an historic night in Evanston. In front of a sold-out Welsh-Ryan Arena, the Northwestern Wildcats were locked in a tight battle with the visiting Michigan Wolverines. With a win, Northwestern would move one step closer to the 9-9 conference record that would almost certainly earn the program its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. As a cherry on top, the Wildcats’ signature nonconference win was looking even better as Seton Hall had just finished off an impressive win over Georgetown. If Bill Carmody’s team could just pull out this victory, it could be argued that it would be the most important night in Northwestern basketball history.
