No. 7 seed Northwestern (22-12, Big Ten 12-8) was just six points away from getting its first Sweet Sixteen berth in program history. Though the Wildcats substantially gained traction in the second half, No. 2 seed UCLA (31-5, 18-2 Pac-12) was just a little bit better overall, leading to a 68-63 loss in Sacramento. This weekend was the second time the Cats appeared in the NCAA Tournament, and it’ll be up to next season’s team to try and score a third.
