No. 6 Norhtwestern, the program’s highest seed ever, took down No. 14 Rutgers, 83-61, in their opening Big Ten tourney game, pushing on to play No. 3 Maryland on Thursday. Everyone got a chance to get in on the action for NU on this night.
Charlie Hall entered Thursday night with a total of two minutes played since the calendar flipped to 2017. He played the final 1:07 in Northwestern's easy win vs. Rutgers, and his mother Julia Louis-Dreyfus loved it all.

“I couldn’t be more proud of him.” - Illinois senior Malcolm Hill's mother Machanda reflected on her son's accomplishments during the Illini's loss to Michigan at the Big Ten Tournament Thursday.
The Michigan marching band was on board the plane that had an accident Wednesday. Unlike the out-of-place practice unis worn by the hoopers, it was impossible to tell from afar that the band members had been involved in any kind of incident.
Anyone associated with the Michigan men’s basketball team won’t soon forget Thursday’s Big Ten tourney-opening win vs. Illinois. Nearly 24 hours after the team plane was in an accident prior takeoff and just a few hours after finally leaving for Washington D.C., the Wolverines were at the Verizon Center, wearing practice uniforms because the real uniforms are part of the investigation.
