The Wildcats beat Vanderbilt 68-66.
It was 78 years in the making for this special moment and it didn’t come easy.
Vanderbilt trailed by 15 points with less than 14 minutes left before going on a 28-12 run to lead Northwestern 62-61 with just over 1:30 left.
Northwestern was down by one with just under 18 seconds left in the game. Then, a baffling play occurred when Vandy’s leading scorer Matthew Fisher-Davis (22 points) purposely fouled Bryant McIntosh as he was dribbling up the court.

That automatically set up Northwestern with a chance to win the game with a pair of free-throws. McIntosh, who finished with 25, calmly handled the pressure and made both.
Vanderbilt failed to score when they got possession of the ball and it was official, Northwestern made history.
After the game, Fisher-Davis clarified to reporters that he didn’t know the score when he fouled McIntosh.
