Here come the Highlanders
i don't have stats on the last time Northwestern men's basketball was favored by 16 points, but surely it has been a while. UC Riverside comes into tonight's game at 4-1, but those four wins have come against very weak competition and they were handled easily @ New Mexico State. the latest Sagarin rankings have UCR at #255 out of 347 teams. NU, by the way, currently sits at #58, sixth-best in the conference.
