The best active team on Northwestern’s campus is back today to take on the Dartmouth Big Green. NU (6-1) enters the matchup on the heels of two close contests, one a tight loss against a ranked Depaul team, and the other a gritty victory against Boston College.
Joe McKeown’s squad is led on the offensive end by Lindsay Pulliam, who leads the teamin field goals made, field goal attempts and points by a wide margin. The silky smooth junior has scored 16 or more in all but one of Northwestern’s seven contests thus far.
On the defensive side of the ball, the team is anchored by Abbie Wolf, who leads NU in blocks and rebounds. The senior is in the midst of a breakout season in which she’s set personal records in all major stat categories.
Dartmouth, on the other hand, is on a two-game losing streak at the hands of Manhattan and Loyola. The Big Green won its first three games of the year, and one of those wins was against old friends Merrimack.
