Vanderbilt fell to Northwestern late in the first round of the NCAA tournament after an intentional foul by Matthew Fisher-Davis while up one.

The Commodores had just scored with 17 seconds left when Fisher-Davis fouled Wildcats guard Bryant McIntosh, leading 65–64.

McIntosh would sink both free throws, and the Wildcats hung on to win the game.

Fisher-Davis said that he didn’t know the score and that he mistakenly thought head coach Bryce Drew was telling him to foul McIntosh.

This was Northwestern’s first NCAA tournament appearance in school history. The Wildcats will face No. 1 Gonzaga on Saturday.
