After demolishing Arkansas-Pine Bluff on opening night, Northwestern (1-0) looks to continue its strong start in nonconference play against cross-town foe Chicago State (0-4). As the Wildcats look to find consistency before Big Ten play begins, the Cougars are in search of their first win after four tough early losses.
The ‘Cats will hope for strong showings once again from Miller Kopp and Chase Audige and will rely on defense and much-improved shooting to get by a struggling Chicago State squad. With a demanding matchup against Pitt just around the corner, a win on Saturday is a crucial momentum-builder for NU.
