After scraping out an overtime win over crosstown rival DePaul on Saturday, Northwestern welcomes Sacred Heart to Welsh-Ryan Arena for a Monday night clash. The Pioneers hail from Fairfield, Connecticut and are losers of eight-straight after a season-opening win over Quinnipiac.

Northwestern freshman Aaron Falzon's brother, Tevin, is a major contributor for the Pioneers. The 6-foot-7 senior averages almost 30 minutes per game but hasn't scored in double figures since a 21-point outburst against Holy Cross on Nov. 25.

The younger Falzon struggled for most of Northwestern's last game against the Blue Demons, but turned it on in overtime, hitting both of his three-point attempts and leading the Wildcats to their seventh win in a row.

Follow along with us as Northwestern goes for an 11-1 start to the season.
