Rutgers hasn’t had a three-game conference winning streak since the 2005-06 season, and that streak doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon.

Northwestern reeled off a 31-0 run in the first half of Thursday’s Big Ten Tournament second round game to take a 37-9 lead six minutes before halftime. Among many highlights, the biggest was this alley-oop slam from Vic Law off a Scottie Lindsey lob.

And another look.

Barring an epic collapse by Northwestern, the Wildcats will seal any doubt that their name will be called on Selection Sunday. By avoiding a bad loss Thursday, Northwestern could get shutout against Maryland in the quarterfinals and still get a bid.
