Notes, quotes and observations from the first day of the Big Ten tournament
INDIANAPOLIS — Juice Thompson holds four career records at Northwestern and is widely considered one of the best players in school history.
Now, he owns a Big Ten record as well.
Thompson scored a career-high 35 points in Northwestern’s 75-65 win over Minnesota on Thursday afternoon, the most points ever scored in a Big Ten tournament game.
“That doesn’t mean anything,” Thompson said. “I’m just happy my team came out and we were able to get a win. I think, as a team, we did a good job of moving the ball around and just finding the right guys.”
