Northwestern:

The Wildcats seek to win their first Big Ten title in program history, despite never reaching the championship game. In the last 16 seasons, head coach Joe McKeown and the Wildcats have a 10-15 record in tournament play and have lost 8 times in the opening game.

Northwestern finished the regular season on a positive note, ending its 6-game losing streak with a 72-62 win over Rutgers. Junior guard and forward Melannie Daley and Caleigh Walsh each scored at least 20 points in the win. The duo have led the Wildcats in scoring in 21 of 29 games this season and are expected to be the program's top performers in the tournament.

Purdue:

The Boilermakers have the most tournament wins (46), final appearances (14), and championships (9) of any women's program in the Big Ten. However, Purdue ended the regular season losing 5 of its last 7 games and struggled in conference play finishing with a 5-13 record.

The team falls within the bottom 4 in the conference in both scoring and field goal percentage. While 5th-year guard Abby Ellis leads the team in scoring with 14.2 points per game, the Boilermakers will be without 6th-year forward Caitlyn Harper who tore her ACL on February 28.
