Northwestern looks to close out the non-conference season on a positive note against Loyola (Md.) on Sunday night. The 10-1 Wildcats enter the game as heavy favorites over the 1-9 Greyhounds.

Loyola showcases a balanced scoring attack with five players averaging between 14.2 and 8.2 points per game. As a team, the Greyhounds struggle to score, averaging 71 points per contest. Northwestern averages 80 per contest, but Northwestern is coming off its highest scoring game in decades after a 103-point outburst against Sacred Heart.

The Wildcats are on an eight-game win streak since losing to North Carolina on Nov. 23. The team is also outscoring its opponents by over 21 points per game in that stretch.

Following the game, the Wildcats will play their Big Ten opener in Lincoln, Nebraska on Dec. 30.

Here's how to watch the game.
