EVANSTON, Ill. (CBS)– The Northwestern Wildcats males’s basketball group followed up their upset of the No. 4 Michigan State Spartans with a hard-fought win over the Hoosiers in Bloomington, Indiana on Wednesday.

The Wildcats were 2nd to last in the conference last year in basket portion.

But on Wednesday night, they played their 2nd straight video game shooting much better than 50 percent.

” After the Michigan State video game and all the talk about a huge upset and all those example, I believe our people were determined to make that not an one-time thing. You know, it was actually essential to them to show that we can be competitive in this league this year, therefore we had great preparation,” stated Northwestern head men’s basketball coach Chris Collins. “I believed we did a fantastic task carrying on the next game after Michigan State.”

Northwestern has another hard test on Saturday when they host No. 23 Ohio State.

If the Wildcats win, they will be 3-0 in the Big 10 for the very first time since the 1967-1968 season.
