EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) The high-definition video boards hanging above Northwestern's new court are quite snazzy. Now all the Wildcats need are better results.
Northwestern heads into its second season under coach Chris Collins with a deeper roster, boosted by a highly touted freshman class, to go with the upgrades to its arena.
The Wildcats went 14-19 overall, 6-12 in the Big Ten last season, and did nothing to shoo away that NCAA tournament albatross hanging over the program. The school that hosted the first Final Four still is seeking its first invitation to the tournament after several close calls under former coach Bill Carmody.
