MBB: Sunday Wrap Up and the Week Ahead

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Another exciting week of college basketball. Another exciting and hard-fought week in Big Ten hoops. Northwestern came from behind to upend Michigan in Ann Arbor today. Fourth-ranked Purdue fell to No. 17/20 Wisconsin on Saturday in Madison. Purdue entered the game as one of four undefeated teams in the nation. Today only two undefeated teams stand as No. 1 Kansas fell to No. 16/15 Tennessee.

Another big week awaits the Big Ten as action tips off on Tuesday night. Iowa and Michigan will step out of conference this week to meet Tennessee State and UConn, respectively.

Drew Crawford scored 25 points and made go-ahead free throws with 1:14 left, lifting Northwestern to a 68-62 comeback win over Michigan on Sunday.
