This Sunday, there is an NCAAB matchup between the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the Northwestern Wildcats. This game will take place at the Welsh-Ryan Arena at approximately 3:00 P.M EST.
Northwestern Looks To Snap Losing Streak
The Northwestern Wildcats have looked like a terrible college basketball team this season. The Wildcats have lost 19 of their first 25 games and they enter this game on a low note after losing to Maryland on the road by nine points in their last game. In that game, Northwestern's offense struggled as it only scored 67 points while shooting just 42.9% from the floor. To make matters worse, Northwestern has lost each of its last ten games so it will be looking to snap that losing streak in this conference home game on Sunday. However, the Wildcats have lost 14 of their first 15 conference games this season so they have looked awful against conference rivals up to this point.
Leading the Wildcats offensively is freshman forwardMiller Kopp who has looked pretty good this season as he is averaging a team-high 13.2 points per game along with 3.6 rebounds. However, he is also shooting just 41.2% from the floor so he has been pretty inefficient offensively.
Northwestern's most underrated player is freshman centerRyan Young who has looked pretty good this season as he is currently averaging 9.2 points per game along with a team-high 6.2 rebounds. In addition, he is shooting 56.7% from the floor so he has been very efficient offensively up to this point.
