The Northwestern Wildcats men's basketball team is an NCAA Division I college basketball team representing Northwestern University in the Big Ten Conference. Men's basketball was first introduced at Northwestern in 1901.[1] Home games are played at Welsh-Ryan Arena, located on Northwestern's campus in Evanston, Illinois.

The team won its sole National Championship in 1931 (a retro-pick by the Helms Athletic Foundation) and its last Big Ten Conference title in 1933. The team has consistently finished in the bottom half of the Big Ten, with only two finishes above fourth place since World War II and none since 1968. It is the only longstanding member of a BCS conference to have never appeared in an NCAA tournament (despite hosting the first NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship game in 1939 and the 1956 NCAA Men's Final Four). Until 2008-09, it was one of the few long-standing members of Division I to have never had a 20-win season. It has appeared in the National Invitation Tournament seven times (1983, 1994, 1999, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012).
