BASKETBALL
Men
Bill Carmody was on WGN last night talking Northwestern Baseketball with Dave Kaplan - he talked about how this year he has to learn to use more than just the starting 5 - he looked down the bench during the last game and realized that there were players there who can also contribute. Watch for Sterling Williams, Jeremy Nash and Jeff Ryan to get more minutes during games. He thinks that maybe subbing out Coble, Moore and Thompson more, they'll have more to give at the end of the game.
