One Shot Away
I’ll have more on this loss tomorrow. It was a good game and really both teams played well. Northwestern had their chances in the overtime period and didn’t capitalize and still got two final chances which came up just short. It’s obviously disappointing, but really NU played well. They simply didn’t get the same good shooting they got at Boston College and since they don’t have any serious inside presence the sub 30% three point night pretty much sealed the Washington State victory and even then NU was just one shot away from sending the game to a second overtime. The loss stinks and I'm sorry to see Juice Thompson end his career. I do kind of wish he could have gotten one of those two last shots, but WSU wasn't going to let that happen.
