The podcast breaks down Northwestern’s 3-2 start to the season and looks ahead to what’s to come.

NCAA Basketball: Texas Tech at Northwestern Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

New podcast alert.

On this week’s basketball-focused episode, I was joined by Chris Grismer and a special guest, hoops writer Joe Wilkinson from the Daily Northwestern. We start by breaking down what went wrong in the Texas Tech game and the overall problems that have caused Northwestern to start out 3-2 without any blowout wins. Then we hand out early grades to each of the team's five starters (17:00) and discuss reasons for optimism while looking ahead to the rest of the season and NU's tournament chances, which we think still look good...for now. (32:20).
