This is, by definition, the biggest game in the history of the Northwestern Wildcats basketball program, because they have never been this far in a postseason tournament before. If they can win at Washington State, they make it to the NIT's Final Four. A win would also be NU's 21st -- that would be a school record. There are two other NIT games also on TV tonight.â†µ
The Blackhawks also return to action tonight. And, there's another NBA doubleheader on national TV.â†µ
