Northwestern will dare them to shoot from the outside in a 1-3-1 half-court trap. Logan Aronhalt went 4 for 4 against Georgia Southern and should be counted on again as a zone-breaker, but the Terps will need more than the Albany transfer to get hot, meaning perimeter threats like Seth Allen, Nick Faust and Jake Layman. Rotate on defense: Northwestern uses its Princeton offense to hunt layups and open three-point shots with back screens, sharp cuts and motion principles. While the Terps have improved defensively, they struggled to defend a hot-shooting Lafayette team on the perimeter. Rotating well and helping each other will drastically cut down on Northwestern’s open looks.
