The Wildcats are 2-0 after annihilating two teams that rank at the bottom of the country per KenPom. Their high-powered offense will look to push the tempo against Jeff Capel’s Pittsburgh Panthers, who have won their last two after being upset by St. Francis (PA) in their season opener.
NU added Division II opponent Illinois-Springfield for next week, but this is its second-to-last D1 non-conference matchup. This game is part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, which the B1G leads 6-1 after Tuesday’s action.
