One year in, Chris Collins' vision is taking shape

Last year, Chris Collins laid out a vision. A year later, that vision is taking shape, and Collins is as confident as ever.

Inside (this version of) the Chris Collins offense

If Northwestern's exhibition win over McKendree taught us anything, it's that Chris Collins' offense already has more wrinkles than it did last season.

Northwestern basketball predictions 2014-15

Here's how we see this season shaping up.

What will Northwestern's guard rotation look like?

Does NU basketball have a go-to player?

Who's going to step up for this team?

How will Northwestern replace Drew Crawford?

Inside JerShon Cobb's fight to stay healthy

JerShon Cobb has spent four years at Northwestern. During three of those four, his body has betrayed him. But coming off meniscus surgery and going into his senior year, there are multiple reasons to believe that this is the year he stays healthy.

What do the numbers say about Northwestern hoops?

KenPom sees some improvement on offense and a hotly-contested Big Ten.

Can an improving Alex Olah spark NU's offense?

It appears that the time is right for Olah to finally break out and become into the stud center he was brought to Northwestern to be. It also helps that he's a decent shooter for a center.

Who is Johnnie Vassar?

"He's different." And ... ?

Tre Demps is a man of constant adjustment

The junior guard has had to change his game and his surroundings a lot. Now he hopes to change the trajectory of Northwestern's program.
