Offseason recruiting plus transfers for NW's basketball team includes Luol Deng's cousin who is 7-2, 3 other commits, a 6'6" winger, 2 6'7" wingers, a 6'9" forward, and a 6'11" forward. Now add that to waht they currently have and we're looking at a team that could give teams in the B10 fits after this year's graduations and attrition.
Semi OT: Northwestern solving their front court problems
I saw that Ajou play in high school and he's extremely raw. Way too raw to touch the court anytime soon. He plays closer to 6'7 than 7'2. But u never know how a player could potentially develop. U can't teach that height.
It's not the size that counts...
It's how you use it!
Maybe now they can make the NCAA Tourney
He went there !
Oh no he didn't !
Oh yes he did . . . .
I hate the ESSS EEEEE SEEEEE mentality, I root for Northwestern to make the tourney every year (I also hope they do well in football, although they are in our division, so I hope they don't do too well). Seems fitting for years of doing things mostly the right way yet getting their teeth kicked in every year.
Great, now can they work on their court problems? That thing is so ugly.
What did they ever do to you?
Everyone saw how much trouble Michigan had last year against Northwestern's 1-3-1 zone. You put this much size on the court it becomes that much more difficult to beat. And somehow they always find players that never touch the paint but can shoot.
I always see Northwestern as a team that is going to suck for a couple years, let their players grow, and then be one of those pesky (sp?) teams in the Big Ten that you should beat, but it's much more difficult than that.
you say '3 other commits' then list out five guys. Am I missing something?
they also have a 2011 transfer available and a 2012 instant transfer.
was big and tall.
And one shining moment in East Lansing.
The school refers to it self as NU. Not nw.
The game between them and Nebraska should be a Rivalry game for naming rights. Which one gets to call itself NU for the athletic year
