GAME RECAP

Drew Crawford, Northwestern

The senior was a steadying presence the whole game, finishing with 17 points, five rebounds and three assists.

By the NUMBERS

6 Three-pointers Northwestern made in the first half, hitting 46.2 percent from that range.

16 Trips to the free-throw line for both teams in a game that had far fewer whistles than the norm.

1-for-9 Malik Smith’s mark from three-point range, one game after going 8-for-12 at Nebraska.
