State To Face Northwestern In 2009 ACC/Big 10 Challenge


The good: We're playing in it. And we're at home.
The meh: We're playing Northwestern.

For those trying to get a feel for Northwestern, here's their KenPom.com scouting report from this past season. A very slow, grind it out team that's very efficient on the offensive end and pretty solid defensively (sound like any team you know from, say, the Pac-10?), they finished their regular season pretty strong, winning 3 of their last 4 in the Big 10 including a road upset of Purdue. They stumbled in the post season, however, losing their last two games against Minnesota in the Big 10 tourney and Tulsa in the NIT.

The game is a million miles away at this point and a lot can change between now and then. File it away in the "Oh. ok." file for now.


  1. I just checked Yet Another Northwestern Sports Blog and their version reads:

    The good: We're playing in it.
    The meh: We're playing NC State

  2. Well played, Anonymous (if that is your real name).

    I'm sure the folks in Illinois aren't all that thrilled to get us, either.

  3. I would had like to play Indian, but like you said at least were in it.
