How will playing time break down this year?

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

With so many new faces this year, it's hard to predict just how Northwestern's rotation and minutes will break down. The Wildcats will have five scholarship freshmen to mix in with the veterans in a rotation that could change throughout the season. Given what we know from the scrimmage and Chris Collins' comments, here's a look at how we project the starting lineup to play out this year, along with minutes projections for everyone.

The Lineup


PG: Bryant McIntosh, Freshman
SG: JerShon Cobb, Senior
SF: Sanjay Lumpkin, Sophomore
PF: Vic Law, Freshman
C: Alex Olah, Junior
