ABOUT CHICAGO STATE (3-6): Senior guard/forward Trayvon Palmer led the way with 16 points and 13 rebounds to notch his second double-double in as many games, but had his potential game-winning 3-pointer blocked in the final seconds against Saint Louis. Fred Sims Jr., who leads the team in scoring (17.9), was limited to seven points on 3-of-12 shooting from the field as the Cougars finished 34.6 percent as a team from the floor in the loss to the Billikens. Chicago State hasn’t fared well against Big Ten foes as it’s dropped nine straight meetings since 2011-12.

ABOUT NORTHWESTERN (7-2): Senior forward Nathan Taphorn set a career high with 18 points to go along with six rebounds off the bench as the Wildcats’ reserves contributed 41 points in the win over New Orleans. “I just have to be confident in myself, play within myself and do what I have the ability to do,” Taphorn told reporters. “i think just seeing the ball go in really, really helps.” The Wildcats suffered a blow to their depth with the news that sophomore forward Aaron Falzon, who has missed the last six games with a knee injury, underwent surgery on Dec. 11 and will miss the remainder of the season.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Wildcats listed as 27.5-point favorites versus the Cougars, while the game’s total is sitting at 131 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40

Northwestern looks to remain unbeaten at home this season when it welcomes Chicago State to Evanston on Wednesday. The Wildcats forced a season-high 21 turnovers en route to a convincing 83-49 victory over New Orleans to improve to 6-0 at Welsh-Ryan Arena and extend their non-conference home winning streak to 19 games.

Northwestern has dominated the series with Chicago State, winning the last nine games by an average margin of 24 points, including a 77-35 rout of the Cougars in their most recent meeting on Dec, 13, 2015. The Wildcats have held five of their first nine opponents to fewer than 65 points and hope to put the defensive clamps on Chicago State, which hasn’t cracked 50 points in its last two games. “It’s been our defense that’s carried the day,” Northwestern coach Chris Collins told reporters. “It’s a big week for us as we have three games in six days.” The Cougars have lost back-to-back games after dropping a 45-43 decision to Saint Louis and they hope to get back on track by beating Northwestern for the first time in program history.
