Northwestern Weekend Wrap: Feb. 11

by Kevin Trahan (@k_trahan)

It was a rough weekend for Northwestern basketball, as the Wildcats fell 71-57 to Iowa in Iowa City. However, there were potentially far bigger losses with injuries to Jared Swopshire and Alex Olah, and the status for both players is unknown. Check out our coverage from Iowa City this weekend, as well as women's basketball and lacrosse coverage.

Men's Basketball

- As we mentioned above, it was a rough weekend for Northwestern basketball. In addition to falling to Iowa, NU could be in trouble with the injuries to Swopshire and Olah. Swopshire had a right knee injury and wasn't putting any weight on that leg. Olah had a head injury, and while Carmody didn't want to speculate, he said Olah will be checked for a concussion. We should know more on both soon.

- Remember NU's dominating win over Purdue? That seems like ages ago after how the Wildcats' offense played in Iowa City. That and more in our three postgame thoughts.

- Video from Bill Carmody's postgame press conference.


This tweet, from Northwestern sports information director Scott Hammer, pretty much sums up Northwestern's weekend in lacrosse:

NU opened the regular season with two easy wins against No. 14 UMass and USC. Now the Wildcats get a two-week break before taking on No. 5 North Carolina.

Women's Basketball

After an encouraging win against Iowa last week, Northwestern fell to Ohio State 59-52 on Sunday. However, the loss overshadowed the big picture. NU also celebrated National Girls and Women in Sports Day and also wore pink to support breast cancer awareness. NU's players and coaches also held a Q&A with local fourth through 12th grade girls and ESPN's Sarah Spain was on hand to speak, as well.
