"The list" shrinks by four
the primary source of frustration for all NU basketball fans is the fact that we've never been to the NCAA tournament. a few years ago USA Today talked about those schools who have never made it and mentioned Northwestern in detail. since this article was published I've kept track of who has earned their first trip. 12 teams are no longer on this list, including 4 who made it this year: American, UT Arlington, UMBC and Portland State.
