'Cats can't keep up with Spartans

to me, it's this type of game that make the close losses to mediocre teams even harder to take. when you see NU clearly over-matched by an elite opponent, you realize they cannot afford to let any wins get away.

Kalin Lucas responded well to his benching and led a balanced scoring attack with 21. NU was out-rebounded by only 14 but had no chance to stop MSU inside. the Spartans were extremely efficient on offense, needing only 54 shots to get their 91 points. the center position continues to be the biggest hole on the NU roster. Mirkovic struggled and Rowley contributed 3 fouls and a turnover in 11 minutes. perhaps interior defense is something NU can work on during what should otherwise be an easy win Thursday night at home against UT Pan American.
