Chris Collins, Dutch Lonborg, and a Bunch of Really Old Dudes You Probably Never Heard Of


With last night's win over Indiana, Chris Collins became the 8th Northwestern coach and the 2015 squad became the 18th NU team to string together at least four consecutive B1G wins. Some folks like to make “tallest midget” jokes about real achievements in Wildcat basketball history. Not me. This is a savory moment. With three regular season conference games left, this group has a shot (2.1% per current KenPom data) to match Dutch Lonborg’s 7-game record conference winning streak. The CBI is now within reach, and the NIT is not impossible. Enjoy.
