(CBS) The Northwestern Wildcats have arrived in Salt Lake City ahead of their NCAA Tournament opener Thursday, so how are team members doing?

Northwestern coach Chris Collins talked with CBS 2’s Ryan Baker as the team prepares for its matchup with Vanderbilt at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The Wildcats practiced Tuesday.

Collins says he’s told his athletes to enjoy the lead-up to the game, but he added: “We’ve also talked about really locking in and being successful. It’s going to be a better experience if you play well. I want them to enjoy it, I want them to take it all in, I want them to enjoy the experience, but we’re here to win.”
