Northwestern's Aaron Falzon hits three with one shoe

Who needs two shoes anyway?

Northwestern freshman Aaron Falzon proved he doesn't need both his kicks to nail a three in the first half of the Wildcats' game against Southern Illinois Edwardsville on Saturday afternoon.

With just about four-and-a-half minutes left in the first half, Falzon lost his shoe, but still hit a three to extend Northwestern's lead to 14 at 29-15. It was Northwestern's first three of the game. Falzon finished the half with eight points.

Although Northwestern center Joey van Zegeren tossed Falzon's shoe off the court before he could retrieve it, the forward continued to run the play. Falzon still didn't have his shoe when the team played defense on the next possession, but called a timeout when the Wildcats got the ball back. Northwestern head coach Chris Collins, though, wasn't pleased with losing that timeout.

At halftime, Northwestern leads SIU Edwardsville 35-26.
