Northwestern guard JerShon Cobb is feeling much better after offseason hip surgery sidelined him for four games this season. And as the Wildcats make their way to Columbus for Wednesday afternoon's Big Ten opener at No. 2 Ohio State, Cobb said the Buckeyes are a very different team from the one NU almost beat twice last season.
"Ohio State didn't lose a lot but the makeup of their team is different and I think we're a better team than we were last year," Cobb said. "We are going into Ohio State expecting to win. Their offense is different because they are relying more heavily on [sophomore Jared] Sullinger than they did last year. And last year they shot more threes, but they are getting to the hole more this year."
