Welcome to the United Center! It's the Wildcats and the Flyers in a key non-conference matchup

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

It's here.

Northwestern (8-2) faces Dayton (7-2) in one of its most important non-conference matchups on the big stage of the United Center for the State Farm Chicago Legends.

The Wildcats have been impressive to start this season, but a win over their Atlantic 10 foes would be the cherry on top. Archie Miller's team has been to three straight NCAA Tournaments and looks to contend for the A-10 crown once again this year led by veteran point guard Scoochie Smith and versatile wing Charles Cooke.

Northwestern will need to get the three ball going to pull off the win at the home of the Chicago Bulls. Wings Vic Law and Scottie Lindsey lead the way offensively, while Sanjay Lumpkin will be counted on defensively to try to contain Cooke.

It cannot be overstated: Although this is just one game, it's a very, very big one.
