| No Comments | No TrackBacks

If fans thought the first-half performance in Sunday night's loss to Illinois was tough to watch, well, Wednesday night's first half against Wisconsin was even worse.

This was historic, even.

Northwestern shot 21 percent and trailed 29-15 at halftime against Illinois.

They made 20 percent from the field against the Badgers and trailed 28-12 at the break. 

It was the lowest-scoring first half since Bill Carmody arrived 13 years ago, surpassing the 13 points the Wildcats scored in the first half of a 56-41 loss to llinois in 2002.
