Game 9: Michigan at Northwestern Preview

Michigan heads to Northwestern tonight for its second road game of the season (9:00 p.m. eastern, BTN).

Road games at Northwestern have been something for a bugaboo for the Wolverines. They’ve lost their last three games at Northwestern and haven’t won in Evanston since  a 94-66 victory on January 3rd, 2013.

Those losses include a miracle 94-foot pass to Dererk Pardon and a double overtime game that Michigan had a 96% chance to win in regulation and a 99% chance to win in the first overtime.

John Beilein has only two regulation wins at Northwestern, that 2013 blowout and a win during his first season when the Wildcats went just 1-17. Every other trip to Evanston has resulted in a loss or an overtime escape despite the fact that Northwestern has never finished better than tied with Michigan in the league standings.
