2011 NIT: Washington State 69, Northwestern 66, OT, postgame thread

Usually it's the football team that sees their season end with a heartbreaking loss, not the basketball team.

Northwestern rallied from 14 down in the first half, tied it with 4 seconds left, got lucky when Abe Lodwick missed two free throws with 0.2 seconds left, then missed open three after open three in the overtime. The game ended when Alex Marcotullio missed two threes in the final five seconds. NU fought hard for the entire 45 minutes, but they didn't have quite enough.

As disappointing as it feels now, let's give some credit to this team for making something of the season in the NIT, and let's thank Juice Thompson for all he's done for this program. What a career he's had.
