More and more people are coming down on the side of paying college athletes, but it's embarrassing that there's even a debate at all. If you're against players being paid, you should be ashamed of yourself.
Al Skinner's been out of college basketball for three years, but had a great run at Boston College. Could he end up as Bill Carmody's replacement?
Northwestern basketball's least favorite son managed to annoy Kendall Gill enough to where Gill attacked him. Which was a bad idea, given that Gill took up boxing after his basketball career.
Iowa has a very good team this year, but they won't make the tournament because of a soft non-conference schedule. The new Northwestern coach, whoever he is, shouldn't make the same mistake.
After winning his third consecutive Patriot League title at Bucknell this season, Dave Paulsen is certainly going to attract interest from high-major programs, and Northwestern will probably be one of them.
Tommy Amaker flamed out his first time in the Big Ten, but the Harvard coach has proven he knows how to win at a school with stringent academic standards. Will NU dip into the Ivy League after what happened with Bill Carmody?
After an embarrassing loss to Illinois that ensures another season with no NCAA tournament, the Bill Carmody hot seat talk is heating up. But this season, and the lack of NCAA tournament appearances, matter less than you'd think.
Kevin O'Neill was relieved of his duties today at USC, allowing me to reflect on how awful Kevin O'Neill was as Northwestern basketball coach and how awful he was overall as a human being.
Even with Reggie Hearn on the bench with a sprained ankle, Northwestern had no problem with Brown thanks to 13 for 24 three point shooting.
Despite falling behind by 18 in the first half and losing Reggie Hearn to an apparent ankle injury, Northwestern fought back to tie Stanford, but ended up losing a heartbreaker.
WELP. Bad news, as Northwestern's best player, Drew Crawford, will need shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the season, so the NCAA Tournament, maybe not so much.
Due to the woefully poor quality of the NUsports.com stream, I don't think anyone who wasn't actually in the building saw this game, and that was probably for the best. TCU shot an abysmal 13 for...
Game's at 7:30 central, and it's not on TV. You can watch a webstream of it here. Northwestern should win this game: the line opened at -9.5 and has since been bet up to -11.5. But, they've lost...
In a remarkably quick game (it barely took 90 minutes to finish), Northwestern overcame a sluggish start and rolled to an easy win over Delaware State. Drew Crawford led NU with 18 points, Dave...
There's really very little to be said about this game. Fairleigh Dickinson was 3-26 last season and appears on their way to a similar record this season, so anything other than a blowout win like...
A look at Nikola Cerina, a transfer from TCU who will begin his first season for Northwestern this fall. Can the 6-foot-9 forward from Serbia be an improvement on centers Luka Mirkovic and Davide Curletti for the Wildcats?
JerShon Cobb was suspended for the upcoming season, and Northwestern basketball may struggle on defense in his absence.
A game by game look at Northwestern basketball's non conference schedule, featuring a few tough games and numerous guarantee games against some of Division 1's weakest programs. Plus, a 100,000 trial Monte Carlo simulation of the schedule!
If Northwestern is actually going to contend for Big Ten titles, something needs to change, and recruiting and admitting better players is the easiest way to do that.
