Northwestern cruised to victory in its season-opener against Texas-Pan American.
There wasn't a lot of offense involved in the Northwestern Wildcats' first regular season game, but they got more than enough scoring to handle an over-matched Texas-Pan American team. Although the Wildcats were just 5-22 from three-point range, they played very good defense all night and kept Texas-Pan American well out of reach. The visiting Broncs managed to shoot just 31.8% overall and missed 19 of 22 three-point attempts.
Next up for the Wildcats is a trip to South Carolina for the Charleston Classic, which begins on Thursday Nov. 17. Northwestern begins that tournament with a game against Louisiana State.
