The 2018 Big Ten Softball Tournament continued on Saturday with Northwestern facing Michigan State in the semifinals for the right to face Minnesota in the championship game.
Morgan Newport was on the mound for the Wildcats — and did she deliver.
She threw her first career no-hitter, leading Northwestern past the Spartans, 11-0.
