Drew Crawford scored a team-high 15 points as Northwestern topped Lewis 57-46 in an exhibition opener Wednesday night. The Wildcats’ 6-foot-5 senior forward also added several highlight-reel plays in the victory. Watch all the top highlights from the game in this post:
The Big Ten men’s basketball season officially tips off Friday night. Before the ball goes into the air, the BTN.com team thought it would be fun to hold a Big Ten mock draft. Our draft consisted of five teams and six rounds, and we all selected a starting 5 and one “reserve,” which could be any player.
Monday night, #BTNLive welcomed Ron Kellogg III to the show to discuss his game-winning Hail Mary pass Saturday. Tuesday night, we invited Jordan Westerkamp to the show to talk about his catch. Westerkamp wasn’t alone, though, as we had former Nebraska receiver and current radio analyst Matt Davison join him. Davison, of course, caught the 1997 game-winning deflected pass at Missouri.
The nation is still buzzing over the Hail Mary pass (Watch it!) that Nebraska completed in the dying moments last Saturday to beat Northwestern, 27-24. But it wouldn’t have happened if Ameer Abdullah had not picked up a huge first down on the fourth-and-15 dump-off pass featured in the video above.
