The Northwestern Wildcats relied heavily on the team’s guards this past season. And after signing its 2014 class, it is clear that the burden of the load will once again fall on their shoulders. Three of the team’s six incoming freshmen — Bryant McIntosh, Johnnie Vassar and Scott Lindsey — are guards.
McIntosh will receive a serious look at the starting point guard position...

EVANSTON, Ill. – The Northwestern Wildcats (12-13, 5-7 Big Ten) will host the Minnesota Golden Gophers (16-9, 5-7 Big Ten) Sunday 5 p.m. at Welsh-Ryan Arena.
Both teams are coming off conference losses Thursday to No. 9 Michigan...
In order for Northwestern basketball to reach the NIT, they’ll need more from JerShon Cobb. The second option behind Drew Crawford, Cobb is second on the team in scoring, and they’re the only two that average double figures for the Wildcats. NU Coach Chris Collins has said on a few occasions that his team does not have the depth of other Big Ten schools, therefore his margin...

Northwestern (10-10, 3-4 Big Ten) continued its surge in the Big Ten standings Tuesday. The Wildcats needed a pair of overtimes at Welsh-Ryan Arena, but they completed an upset of Purdue (13-6, 3-2), 63-60.
When Drew Crawford struggles to score, it's going to be hard for Northwestern to get a win.
When Crawford and JerShon Cobb are off, it's probably going to be one long night for the Wildcats.
Alex Olah had a career-high 23 points, but Crawford and Cobb combined for just 17 during Northwestern's 76-49 loss to No. 4 Wisconsin in their Big Ten opener Thursday night.
