Northwestern Wildcats prepare for another Big Ten opponent

By Nader Ihmoud

The Northwestern University Wildcats will continue Big Ten play when the No. 12 ranked University of Minnesota Gophers visit Welsh Ryan Arena on Jan. 23.

The Wildcats (11–8) are 2–4 against conference opponents and have posted a 6–7 record at home this season. The Wildcats have won the last five meetings between the two teams at Welsh Ryan. Northwestern’s only road loss happened during the team’s first meeting with the Gophers on Jan. 6.

The Chronicle caught up with a few players and Head Coach Bill Carmody before their Jan. 22 practice to discuss the key to a Wildcat victory against the Gophers.
