Photos from Northwestern vs. Long Island

Interestingly enough, Crawford didn't get credit for this block in the final box score.
Northwestern took care of business against Long Island on Monday night and came away with a 81-65 victory at Welsh-Ryan Arena. John Shurna was 10-11 from the field and scored a game-high 26 points. There will be a longer write up about the game tomorrow, but here are some photos from the action.

Three Thoughts - Northwestern vs. Georgia Tech

You can read the extended version of my thoughts from the game by going back over the live-blog that is below this. It was a good time and I’m sure I’ll be doing more of them this season. If you read it thanks! A 91-71 victory is pretty impressive, even against a team picked to... Read more »

More revelations about Kevin Coble

Northwestern plays tonight against Arkansas-Pine Bluff, but the game isn’t what people are going to focus when it comes to the Wildcats.  That’s because Kevin Coble, in an email to SI.com, appears to have made this situation all the more perplexing.

Hoops and Snoop at Northwestern

When I did my preview of Midnight Madness events happening on Friday night I completely forgot to mention Hoops and Snoop at Northwestern. That’s a shame because the Wildcats will probably have the best basketball team in Chicago this season and also because their sports information staff actually released the news an extra Friday before...

European statistics are sketchy

I was hoping to do per possession statistics for Northwestern’s trip to Italy, but I discovered when I looked at the recaps that the box scores don’t quite have enough statistical depth to allow for it. No offensive rebounds means no way of calculating possessions and now minutes played means usage rates are impossible to... Read more »

All-Chicago Chicago College Basketball Team

The season is over and I’ve waited quite a while to do this considering Northwestern played the final area basketball game of the season more than a week ago. Still, I wanted to take some time, decompress and then select an All-City team. One of the things I did this season when selecting the team... Read more »

Northwestern Season Epilogue

John Shurna’s development was one of the big keys for Northwestern this season. The Northwestern Wildcats went one step further than any other team in Chicago. They reached the postseason.
