Reggie Will be fine he wont need to Redshirt!!! Cerina I believe with him it depends on if he wants to play a full season. Right now in today's college basketball, players make more career decisions than ever before.
I think NU is talented enough to finish this season above .500. Alex Olah is still developing and he has gotten so much better since his first game. Competition and playing against better players will do that. Chier Ajou hopefully by mid BigTen season, his production can increase mainly defensively.
I've looked at the BigTen Schedule and Northwestern has 10 games they could definitely win (2Iowa, 2PennState, hm Wisconsin, at Nebraska, hm vs Minnesota, 2 Purdue, and either 1 upset or a BigTen tournament win).
