Northwestern Wildcats Men’s Basketball Schedule
Basketball and the 20th century arrived at Northwestern University nearly simultaneously, as the Wildcats first varsity basketball game one year after the turn of the century. Successful seasons have been few and far between since then, however, as Northwestern has only one national championship title (‘31) in basketball, and has only won the Big 10 Conference once (in ‘33). The Wildcats also have the dubious honor of being the only team from a major conference to have never received an invitation to play in the annual NCAA Tournament, but that streak could end soon. The Wildcats have played in a number of venues over the years, and currently host their games at 8,117-seat Welsh Ryan Arena in downtown Evanston, Illinois. GoTickets has your Northwestern basketball tickets for every game.
Bill Carmody has been the head coach at Northwestern for more than a decade, and has had his teams on the verge of breaking out several times, including last season. The Wildcats regular season record was 19-14 last year (8-10 in the Big Ten), and they ended up bowing out in the second round of the NIT tournament after just missing the Big Dance.
The Northwestern Wildcats schedule was brutal last year, as many of their toughest match ups were on the road. Their conference schedule eases up a bit this year, but it is still a rugged Big Ten schedule any way you slice it. That said, Northwestern fans are devoted to their team, and Wildcat basketball tickets are often hard to come by even for the non-marquee games.
The Northwestern Wildcats roster will be missing last year’s leading scorer and rebounder John Shurna, who is trying his hand in the NBA, but Drew Crawford and his 15 ppg average are returning. But hope always springs eternal, and that hope was elevated a bit when blue chip point guard recruit Jaren Sina committed to the Wildcats. This might be the year for March Madness in Evanston, so make sure you are there with Northwestern Wildcats tickets.
