Northwestern managed to run past Chicago State 72-49 on Wednesday night at Welsh-Ryan Arena. It was senior night for Jeremy Nash and Matt Steger. The Cougars kept the game close until a few minutes remained in the first half, but a 12-2 run to close the half gave the Wildcats a comfortable margin and let them hang on for the win.
I'll do a more thorough analysis tomorrow. But here are photos from the game.
