Northwestern Wildcats, 88, LSU Tigers, 82 Postgame Thread

2-0.

Northwestern won its first game in the Charleston Classic in kind of silly fashion. Things looked really bad in the first half: LSU's tenacious defending forced a bunch of turnovers, the team was clanking from three, and every single shot from the lane missed. The Cats were down 14 at some point against LSU, who for all intents and purposes, is not as good as Northwestern. If it wasn't for John Shurna, NU could've hit the half down 20.

Then, halftime happened, and things clicked. NU switched into the 1-3-1 zone - THE KRAKEN - started hitting threes, and, well, good stuff. Shurna went off, putting up a career high 37, Drew Crawford scored all 17 of his points in the second half, Reggie Hearn hit two big threes and played great at the top of the 1-3-1, even forcing a ten-second violation, and Dave Sobolewski hit an extremely clutch three with less than 35 seconds on the clock to essentially seal the comeback win.

The Cats play Tulsa tomorrow, and there'll be a game thread!
