This is the fifth and final one of five season recaps that appeared this week. There was one each day in reverse order of current KenPom ranking, so check the archives for your team. This wasn’t the year that Northwestern made the NCAA Tournament, but it wasn’t a complete loss either. The Wildcats showed some... Read more »

Chicago College Basketball's All-Big Ten Teams

A lot has already been said about the Big Ten teams. Heck, everyone has selected one. (Two of the better ones you’ll find are at UMHoops.com and Sippin’ On Purple – if only for the award names.) Also, you won’t find any third team here. The league is only 11 teams deep, why do we... Read more »

The curse of DeChellis continues

Northwestern lost again to Penn State on Thursday night, 66-52, at Welsh-Ryan Arena. It’s safe to say that right now the Nittany Lions own the Wildcats.

Photos from Northwestern vs. SIU Edwardsville

There’s not much you can say about a 98-55 victory. Northwestern came out focused and five players scored in double-figures, including Reggie Hearn with 10 points. Austin Nichols was the only player that got into the game and didn’t score. Also, Michael Thompson only played 18 minutes tonight, but you sure wouldn’t know it from... Read more »

That’s not that unexpected, as Michigan has struggled to score against a number of teams this season, but it’s great to see... Read more »

Northwestern blows out Indiana

To be honest, I’m not quite sure what you can take away from Northwestern’s 93-81 victory at Welsh-Ryan Arena tonight over Indiana. Oh sure, the Wildcats got a victory and the Hoosiers now have even more questions to answer, but other than that it’s tough to take away too much. This was Northwestern taking advantage...

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 »

Some tempo-free Northwestern notes

Note: All statistics in this post are from ESPN.com or the magical spreadsheet that I pump the ESPN.com statistics into. Now that Northwestern has played four games, I thought it was time to look into some of their tempo-free statistics before the season gets too far along. Maybe there are some early trends that can...
