Northwestern beat #20 LSU, 44-43. Key game moment:
LSU seemed to take control of the game during a five-minute stretch of the second half. After falling behind for the first time all night, Northwestern regained the lead at 24-23 on a basket by Hackney with 16:59 left. The Wildcats wouldn’t score for another 5 1/2 minutes.
I had a feeling this upset would happen based on an email I got this morning. This season is only 11 days old, and look at all that has happened so far.
