Wildcats do what they need to do

NU moved to 2-0 in its season within a season, this stretch run to determine where they play in the postseason. the 'cats jumped out to an early lead and never really let IU make things interesting the rest of the way. we all know that Tom Crean will get things turned around quickly, possibly as soon as next season, and the Hoosiers have played well at times this year, including a win over Pitt in December. but it was remarkable to see Indiana struggle to keep up with a Northwestern team that had more talent and - dare i say it? - more athleticism.

Rowley was awkward as usual but not completely terrible. (i did have to chuckle at the irony of BC replacing Mirkovic with Rowley because Luka missed a layup.) Capocci made some good contributions in his five minutes, and i wouldn't be surprised if his minutes go up a little bit over the next few weeks.

next up is a trip to Iowa City and another must-win. all those empty seats won't be overly threatening. Iowa started the season by losing at home to UT-San Antonio and Duquesne, but they played OSU and Purdue tough in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
