Duke Blue Devils vs. Northwestern Wildcats [WOMEN]

2017 began with a lot of promise in Evanston, Illinois. The Northwestern Wildcats were coming off their first NCAA Tournament appearance in program history and returned most of their team. However, sometimes things happen that you just can’t explain. The Wildcats stumbled to the finish line, losing their last seven, and finishing the year just 15-17 overall including 6-12 in Big Ten Conference play.

Now Northwestern will never be known as a recruiting hotbed, but their classes have gotten better in recent years, and their incoming class this year is perhaps their best ever. We see that there are four solid recruits, in total, highlighted by forward Miller Kopp from Houston, Texas, and forward Pete Nance from Akron, Ohio. In addition, Northwestern does return two of its top four scorers, forward Vic Law, who averaged 12 points and 5.8 rebounds per game a year ago, as well as center Dererk Pardon, who averaged 11.3 points per game and 7.1 rebounds per game. If this team can figure out whatever a happened a year ago and correct that, a return to the NCAA Tournament is not out of the question.

The Northwestern Wildcats, once one of the lowly programs in major conference college sports, have now risen from that existence to become rather respected. In this century their football team has played in 10 bowl games, and last year, the men’s basketball team made the NCAA tournament for the first time ever. So far this season, the Wildcats are off to a respectable 6-4 start, including a record of 1-1 in conference play. They don’t have any big game wins so far, but they don’t have any bad losses either. They will have a chance over the next few weeks to pad that record even more against the likes of Valparaiso, DePaul, Lewis, and Brown.

They do have a game against Oklahoma on December 22, which will give them an opportunity to get a big “out of conference” win before they return to conference play. As of this moment, the Wildcats have four players averaging double digits in per game scoring, led by Scottie Lindsley at 15.8. They are going to need him to continue at that pace if they want to return to the dance this season.

The Northwestern Wildcats basketball program is actually one of the oldest out there in college basketball. The Wildcats began playing basketball in 1904 under Tom Holland, who coached the team for one season before Louis Gillesby became the head coach. The Wildcats have never been known as basketball program though, and the results have shown that. They had some success in the early days, but since the late 1940’s have spent most of their time at or near the bottom of the Big Ten. As far as postseason play is concerned, the Wildcats have made the NIT seven times most recently in 2012. However, they have never once participated in the NCAA tournament.

As stated in the previous paragraph, the Wildcats have never participated in the NCAA tournament and it appears that this season will not be their first either. The Wildcats currently stand at 10-13 overall on the season, including an abysmal 1-9 in conference play. The lone in conference win came at Rutgers by the score of 51-47. Some of the losses have been close calls though. They lost in overtime on the road against Michigan State 84-77, a game in which the offense ran out of gas in the final minutes of overtime. They lost at home to Illinois by five. They also lost on the road to 13th ranked Maryland 68-67. The leading scorer on this team is freshman Bryant McIntosh, who is averaging 12.3 points per game. The second leading scorer is junior guard Trey Demps, who is averaging 11.7 points per game.
