UIC 28-47 [.596] from the floor
Northwestern 15-45 [.333]
The Cats started to make a run with 8 minutes, but UIC made a few quick baskets to keep the game out of reach.
High scorer for UIC was Cedrick Banks - 12-18, 5-8 from 3 and 2 FT for 31 points.
In his postgame interview, NU Coach Bill Carmody said that the Cats had just been outplayed, and that the veterans have to step up when the Cats play a team that is as athletic as UIC. He also noted that NU had trouble rebounding because UIC seemed to make all their first half shots.
Greg's story should be up in the morning, next is Fordam, at Welsh-Ryan Sunday at 1 PM CST.
