Scouting Northwestern

Hit the offensive boards hard. Northwestern is not a good rebounding team. The loss of Jared Swopshire hurts them even more in that department. Also, throw in the fact that the Wildcats do not push the ball in transition, makes this the perfect game to send 3 or 4 to the glass to get second chance points.

The Wildcats are not very good at post defense and don't have much depth there. Attack them inside, make good post moves.

Northwestern will switch all five at times on defense. This will lead to all kinds of mismatches. It will be important to continue to run your offense and the mismatch will get exploited. Don't just focus on the mismatch, continue to run your offense.
