Women's Basketball On Top of Big Ten
Obviously, this isn’t the biggest NU sports story of the day, but NU’s women’s basketball team is currently leading that Big Ten thanks to a 60-58 win over Purdue. For whatever reason, the schedule makers had the Wildcats and Boilermakers play a league game in December and thanks to some great defense and a big comeback the Wildcats pulled out the win. I'm not sure NU will hold this Big Ten lead that long, but this is a much better women's basketball team than NU has had in the last decade. Joe McKeown seems to have been a very strong hire for Jim Phillips.
