After taking a leave of absence from the team in September, Northwestern forward Mike Turner decided to leave the program and transfer, the school announced Saturday morning.
Turner appeared in all 32 games last season for Northwestern, averaging 1.9 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists.
The general speculation was that Turner would decide to transfer after...
Drew Crawford and a cast of Wildcats saw great success on offense, earning a confidence-boosting 86-64 win over Mississippi Valley State.
Alex Olah scored 18 points, and the Wildcats turned a solid second half into a comfortable victory against Gardner-Webb.
JerShon Cobb hit a running pull-up in the lane with 2.3 seconds left to give Northwestern a 63-61 comeback victory over IUPUI Friday night.
Northwestern took a 59-55 lead with 2:29 left on three Sobolewski free throws, but IUPUI rallied and tied the score on a pair of Patton free throws with 20 seconds left, setting the stage for Cobb's heroics. Cobb got the ball on the left...

Tweet College walk-ons usually are nothing more than practice players with the occasional one getting a scholarship here and there, and usually when they get a scholarship it’s done in the coach’s office. Northwestern first year head coach Chris Collins took it a step further, awarding walk-on James Montgomery III for his hard work with...
Here comes a rant. It’s become a disgusting, overplayed annoying record. It’s like being trapped in the middle of nowhere with one radio station and no iPod. And the radio is playing crap you don’t want to hear, but you can’t turn it off. And your gas tank is running low and you don’t have [...]
It may be a bit early for such grand pronouncements, but the Golden Gophers Big Ten season has reached a crossroads. We know they can not beat teams ranked #5 on home, road, or neutral floors. We also don't know where the Gophers sit in the Big Ten pecking order. Losing to highly ranked teams is fine if there is consistent effort and the game is close throughout. Unfortunately...
After starting the Big Ten season in grand style with a reality claiming victory over the Michigan State Spartans, the Golden Gophers end the first week of the conference season against the injury riddled Northwestern Wildcats. After a couple surprising losses by some of the Big Ten's best, a win would go a long way towards establishing the Gophers as one best teams in the conference...
Former Cardinal Jared Swopshire is fitting nicely with his new team. The Northwestern Wildcats are off to a 3-0 start for the first time in over a decade. This is obviously the Swop effect, no?
In three games this season, Swop is averaging 11.7 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists. He had a career high performance last week’s 81-68 win against Mississippi Valley State, finishing...
Northwestern junior guard JerShon Cobb has been suspended for the 2012-13 season for violating team policy.
The 6-foot-5 Cobb averaged 7.1 points in 21 games last season and 7.4 points as a freshman in 27 games. He started 33 games the last two seasons.
The school said Cobb remains enrolled Northwestern and is still a part of the basketball program. He will have two years of eligibility...
Northwestern's JerShon Cobb - who has missed 19 games in his first two seasons due to injury - will now spend an entire year out of uniform for violation of team rules. This is a blow to a team which lost All-Everything John Shurna and is still seeking its first ever NCAA Tournament bid.
Cobb, who started 8 games last season, was playing the best basketball of his career at...
Less than 6 days to Selection Sunday, and then we will know for sure who the committee is going to put in the 2012 NCAA Basketball Tournament. A strong week for Purdue and Cincinnati has moved them from my bubble to IN status, shrinking the bubble to 10 teams. Illinois St. could have moved the bubble to nine but fell in the Missouri Valley Championship to Creighton in OT. If...
