The Wildcats (3-3) are out east tonight as they prepare to take on the BC Eagles (4-4) in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Tuesday’s matchup serves as Northwestern’s first true road test of the season after coming off a tough loss to Pittsburgh in last week’s Fort Myers Tip-Off Championship Game.
Chris Collins’ team has a chance to bounce back and pick up a quality high-major win against a Boston College team that has lost three straight and holds the worst KenPom rating in the ACC. That being said, a road test is never easy.
