WATCH: Northwestern reacts to first-ever NCAA Tournament bid


The 2017 NCAA Tournament bracket was unveiled on Sunday evening. It was all but inevitable that Northwestern was finally going to dance.

The Selection Show, adding a level of drama, didn’t announce the region Northwestern was in — the West Region — until the absolute end.

Check out the reaction when Northwestern heard its name called.

The Wildcats, who went 23-11 this season, will be a No. 8 seed set to face No. 9 Vanderbilt.
