Much. Needed. Win.

Great leadership by DJ, who finished with 30 pts.
Great leadership by McLaurin, who started the game with a dunk.

WE WIN WE WIN WE WIN

Solid game overall after the nightmare of a three game stretch.

Obviously, huge game for DJ.

But this game was won on the defensive end. Great effort and energy on defense tonight. Led to some fast break opportunities.

Glad we had this sort of game. It was sorely needed.

Man does the schedule get tough for the next 3 weeks now...

Dj was oh my!! Bertrand, Sam, and Egwu had good games but the rest of the team has me very worried for the rest of the season. A win feels good though.

Haven't seen DJ play that well offensively in ... ever. Great to see him step up when we needed it.

I was thinking, Nebraska is BAD. But, we won. Northwestern is BAD. We did not win. I am enjoying this game. It was not even close in the second half. Did they ever get within ten? I like to see us keep them put away.
