Many bracketologists believe that Northwestern's 2012 NCAA Tournament hopes ended with the Wildcats' loss to Minnesota in the Big Ten Tournament, but CBS Sports' Jerry Palm still thinks Northwestern is worthy of an at-large bid.
In the bracket projection update he made at about 8:20 p.m. CT on Saturday night, Northwestern was still in the field, albeit as one of the last four teams to receive a bid. Palm seems to feel more strongly than most about Northwestern's tournament merits, and at the very list, this would seem to indicate that the Wildcats will be a part of the discussion among the selection committee on Sunday.
