The Northwestern Wildcats pulled off a huge home victory over #12 Minnesota Golden Gophers. If the Wildcats want to make this the season they go dancing for the first time in school history, they will need more marquee wins like this one. What was missing from Wednesday night’s thrilling win, the students. Against a nationally ranked opponent, with an 8 pm start time, the Wildcats tipped off in front of about 75 students. How do I know this number? I was there and I was able to count every student in the student section one by one. For those of you quick to jump to the student section’s defense, no it did not fill up as the game went on, 75 was about it. You can count for yourself in this picture. It will be hard to make it to the NCAA tournament with home court showings like this one, but if Welsh-Ryan Arena gets full, it can really get rocking. var conf_57503 = { APIKey: '2_N1YlfjHIEAtyRAK3CAYRE5a1aBuANuMOCLc_7hsOQ13HnwCrW_u-6OuDhjC7vR06 ', lang : 'en', enabledProviders: '' }; var image57503 = {src:'http://cdn.cosbysweaters.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/20130123_200636-e1359008483352.jpg',href:'http://cosbysweaters.com/2013/01/23/northwestern-upsets-12-minnesota-in-front-of-student-section-of-75/',type:'image'}; var ua_57503 = new gigya.services.socialize.UserAction(); ua_57503.setUserMessage(''); ua_57503.setLinkBack('http://cosbysweaters.com/2013/01/23/northwestern-upsets-12-minnesota-in-front-of-student-section-of-75/'); ua_57503.setTitle('Northwestern Upsets #12 Minnesota in front of Student section of 75'); ua_57503.addMediaItem(image57503); var params_57503 ={ userAction:ua_57503, cssPrefix:'#gig-div-buttons-57503-bottom', shareButtons:'facebook-like,google-plusone,share,twitter,email', // list of providers containerID: 'gig-div-buttons-57503-bottom', cid:'' }; gigya.services.socialize.showShareBarUI(conf_57503,params_57503); Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
