(WSCR) After big wins against Big Ten rivals Illinois and Iowa, the Northwestern basketball program is starting to make some noise around the NCAA.
Head coach Bill Carmody joined The McNeil and Spiegel Show to discuss his team’s recent success.
“The guys played really well,” he said. “I really enjoyed watching them, to tell you the truth. Sometimes, you’re there and every play just burns you up, but last night, even though I was trying to work pretty hard, I was enjoying it as I was going. I thought the guys passed the ball so nicely and were so unselfish. Each guy came through when they had to.”

Carmody said his team’s balance has been their strength this season. They’re not longer counting on scoring from just John Shurna and Drew Crawford.
“You can just have one or two guys who you depend on all the time,” Carmody said. “Drew and John have been like that for a couple of years now. … When you have that kind of balance, it makes the shots that Drew (Crawford) and John (Shurna) are taking a lot easier because they don’t feel like they have to make every shot.”
