Here’s what Northwestern coach Bill Carmody said was the difference between today’s game (a 73-58 Wildcats’ win) and Saturday’s contest (an 88-80 overtime victory for IU).
"You know, just that - find out where that guy Hulls is, right, because he just destroyed us (Hulls made eight three-pointers Saturday and went 1 for 3 on three-pointers today.)," Carmody said. "…Mike (Thompson) made three or four threes, but Jordan Hulls made every shot he took just about the same last week, and he made a win, and then the other guys picked up because of his play. I thought our guys today picked up because of the bench and our defense the last 10 minutes seemed to me to be very good. But I don't know if it helped that we lost, except some guys were a little ticked off."
