After being forced to the sidelines due to NCAA transfer rules, Nikola Cerina has been stuck with a similar fate this season. The junior forward has dealt with lingering effects from a high ankle sprain, and Northwestern hasn't been able to count on him. Cerina hopes that will soon change.

Northwestern junior forward Nikola Cerina meets with the media, discussing his current situation with the team. PurpleWildcats offers video of the interview.
Northwestern's lineup issues were quite evident in a 64-49 loss to Nebraska. While the Wildcats' two centers were unproductive in 39 total minutes, forward Jared Swopshire attacked the boards to the tune of 16 rebounds, the most during Bill Carmody's tenure. Northwestern would be wise to seek an alternative.
