Outback Bowl preview - basketball edition

this year's bowl-related post doesn't have as much detail as last year, primarily because NU changed the online format of its media guide which makes things a little more difficult to navigate. there also isn't a lot of history with Northwestern basketball and the SEC, but here we go:

  • Northwestern and Auburn have never faced each other in basketball.
  • Overall NU is 8-14 against the SEC, but the most recent meeting was way back in December 1992. NU lost by 20 at Vanderbilt.
  • NU has a victory over the University of Tampa; the Wildcats have never played the University of South Florida.
  • Under Bill Carmody the team has played only once in the state of Florida, a 71-53 loss at Florida State in December 2003.
obviously the big win on Sunday served as Drew Crawford's coming out party, while Kyle Rowley continues to be utterly useless (5 fouls in 8 minutes). tomorrow the last-place team from the Atlantic Sun comes to town. let's hope that this is an easier win than the last time North Florida was in Evanston. (ahh, i remember those days at FBC. back when i only had two regular readers instead of the eight or nine now.)
