NU Owns Halftime Edge

It was a rough first half for Northwestern right out of the gate, as NU is shooting just 46.2-percent. The Wildcats have struggled from outside, making just two-of-ten threes, but still lead Texas-Pan American 31-19 at the break.

However, NU has dominated inside due to an undersized UTPA frontcourt. Luka Mirkovic has 10 points and has dominated the paint, while John Shurna leads the team with 11.

Freshmen Tre Demps and Dave Sobolewski got the start today, as Drew Crawford and Alex Marcotullio came off the bench after sitting out the exhibition game due to injuries.

Both Crawford and Marcotullio came into the game, however. JerShonn Cobb is the only notable injury, as he is still nursing hip surgery that the received this spring and will not play today.
