Northwestern fends off Baylor, 74-70

Drew Crawford went 6-of-11 from the field and led five Northwestern players in double digits with 19 points as the Wildcats defeated Baylor 74-70 on Tuesday at Ferrell Center in Waco. Northwestern also got double-digit contributions from Reggie Hearn (17), Dave Sobolewski (13), Jared Swopshire (12) and Alex Olah (10). Northwestern (7-2) nearly blew the 18-point lead that Crawford gave them on a field goal midway through the second half. The Wildcats were able to carry momentum into the break and sustain it to start the second half. The game was a stalemate at 32-32 when Northwestern went on a

Big Ten Geeks: Longing for the Bubble

Purdue isn’t used to this. Under Matt Painter, only once have we seen the Boilermakers struggle, and that was in Painter’s understandably rebuidling 2005-06 season, which managed only a 9-19 record in the wake of Carl Landry’s knee injury that kept him off the court for the majority of the season. Since then, Purdue has won no fewer than 22 games a season. It didn’t matter if the team was relying on freshmen, whether it was short, or whether key players were lost to injuries. Painter somehow kept the whole thing going. So I understand why other prognosticators had trouble

Northwestern falls to UIC

 Josh Crittle’s go-ahead basket with 53 seconds remaining helped UIC to a 50-44 upset of Northwestern on Saturday. Crittle finished with a team-high 13 points, and Gary Talton’s two free throws with 29 seconds left sealed the win for the Flames (6-1). The Wildcats committed 16 turnovers and were just 10 of 20 from the free-throw line.

Big Ten Geeks: Indiana's defense impresses

All in all, it was quite a good first night for the Big Ten in its Challenge with the ACC. Let’s take a quick look at the results. The night’s marquee game was Indiana vs. North Carolina, and the nation’s number one team did not disappoint. The Hoosiers were  a double-digit favorite, so the fact that they won was not a surprise, but the manner in which they won was mighty impressive. For much of the first half, it was a back-and-forth game, with neither team really playing their best. Indiana closed the half on a run to take a

Clothes Call: Check out these Northwestern shoes

When it was announced last week that Maryland was joining the Big Ten, I predicted Under Armour would come up with some crazy uniforms for future Maryland-Northwestern football games. Turns out, we didn’t have to wait until 2014 for it. Under Armour, which outfits both schools, designed some crazy shoes that select players wore during Tuesday’s ACC/Big Ten Challenge game. [ Maryland, Northwestern’s ridiculous sneakers] In a word, wow! Those almost look more like something a wrestler would wear than a basketball player. But, hey, the insole makes up for it.  Check it out: Yep, Under Armour wants to make

Future Big Ten member Maryland downs Northwestern

Dez Wells set a career high with 23 points as Maryland blew out Northwestern in the second half en route to a 77-57 win on Tuesday night. A week after Maryland announced it would leave the ACC and join the Big Ten in 2014, the Terrapins and Wildcats faced off in a preview of future conference foes and one of 12 contests in the annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Big Ten Geeks: Season Preview, Part One

Time for our season preview! As is BTG custom, Mike and I discuss the season as only we know how—long-windedly. Josh: OK, so we’re a couple weeks in, and the Big Ten still looks like the nation’s best conference. Miles ahead of everyone else. I have the Big Ten winning the Challenge, easily. So with the Big Ten so good, does the “8 and 10 and In” campaign start now? Mike: I’ve wondered the same thing. Illinois has looked quite good, and Pomeroy still has the Illini projected to go 8-10 in the conference. You’d like to believe that the mantra of

Northwestern held TCU to 13-of-49 shooting, as defense led the Wildcats to a 55-31 victory on Friday at South Padre Island Convention Center in South Padre Island in the South Padre Island Invitational.
