NCAA issues statement on non-goaltending call in Gonzaga-Northwestern game

NCAA issues statement on non-goaltending call in Gonzaga-Northwestern game

Collins will have all but two of his players back next season.

But Northwestern's second half was not short of life. There were seasons when the North Siders had the talent to win it all but didn't, often because of a pervasive feeling that they had no business doing so.

"I think all of you would". "We're going to learn from the experiences we had in the tournament and use it for next year". We were undefeated and we didn't feel any of that.

"As much as we deserved the fans flying out here and giving us as much love as they did, they deserve just as much credit as we do", Law said. "We all enjoy competing at the highest level".

Odds-makers aren't exactly bullish on Northwestern's chances, as they are 11 point underdogs against the top-seeded Bulldogs.

Gonzaga went on to win 79-73.

Collins handled the questions about the call with class, noting that it is human to err and nothing could be done about it now. Collins reached through the basket from below and blocked the shot that would have cut the deficit to three.

Sports are dumb. I'm hurt by the loss, mad a call was missed, bewildered by the arbitrariness of review rules, proud of Collins for fighting against a basketball injustice, and simultaneously frustrated at Collins for letting his emotions cost the team.


"Wow", Collins said on multiple occasions, feigning surprise. Football coach Pat Fitzgerald, giving Willie the Wildcat a run for his money as team mascot, and ESPN personality Mike Greenberg led the crowd in the school fight song. Said senior Sanjay Lumpkins, "The way we played [in the second half] is who we are". It would have been very easy to pack it in and call it a good season after going down 18 points to a #1 seed. "We had all the pieces to be special". Mathews was an impact defensive presence, and played with great activity that disrupted Northwestern's offense.

Once the Bulldogs' lead fell under single digits, the Wildcats ratcheted up the pressure. Tillie added eight points, five boards, one block and one steal. The Wildcats had never before made it into the NCAA tournament.

There is no one more qualified to describe the journey from the days before the start of the Chris Collins Era to where Northwestern basketball is now, four years after Collins arrived in Evanston. "But there were other big plays".

He saw a sea of purple supporting Northwestern's maiden NCAA tournament voyage. "I wouldn't put it all on this technical". Northwestern shot just 30 percent in the first half.

There was the family in Oregon Ducks gear behind Gonzaga's basket, the man in the Real Salt Lake uniform, the woman in the Utah Jazz jersey, the elderly man in the Idaho long-sleeve, the little boy in the BYU T-shirt - all of them were on their feet for Northwestern. It kept the Wildcats from getting dialed in on the perimeter. NU cut it to five with 22 seconds left. Then Vic Law and Scottie Lindsey slowly exited the court.

"... when a Gonzaga defender put his arm through the rim to..." The Wildcats missed 10 straight baskets from the perimeter before finally making one.

This time around, the Zags handed the keys to Karnowski's understudies, freshmen Zach Collins and Killian Tillie.

- Northwestern outscored Gonzaga 17-3 in points off turnovers after halftime.
