ABOUT NORTHWESTERN (23-11): Junior guard Bryant McIntosh. who leads the team in scoring at 14.4 points per game, holds the program record for most career assists with 541, breaking the old mark of 528 set by Michael ‘Juice’ Thompson (2007-11). Scottie Lindsey is working his way back to 100 percent after missing three weeks with a bout of mono in February as he averaged 16.3 points in the Big Ten Tournament after only managing 7.6 over his previous five outings. The Wildcats dropped four of their last five meetings with Vanderbilt but they haven’t met since Dec. 3, 1992.

Eighth-seeded Northwestern make its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament when it takes on No. 9 seed Vanderbilt in the first round of the West Region in Salt Lake City on Thursday. The Wildcats set a program record with 23 victories and won back-to-back games in the Big Ten tournament for the first time before bowing out to Wisconsin 76-48 in the semifinals, and hope to make a splash in the Big Dance after ending a 78-year drought.

“I know it’s a long time coming for a lot of people that have followed the program for a lot of years,” Northwestern coach Chris Collins told reporters. “Most happy for the players though as those are the guys that have earned this right.” Vanderbilt became the first team to earn an at-large bid with 15 losses as it did just enough to punch its ticket to the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive year. The Commodores won five of their last six regular-season games and beat Texas A&M 66-41 and Florida 72-62 in overtime before losing to Arkansas 76-62 in the semifinals of the SEC tournament to seal a berth. Vanderbilt dropped four of its last five matchups with Big Ten opponents, including a 60-57 loss to Wisconsin in 2012 NCAA Tournament, and hopes to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time since falling to the Badgers.
