Northwestern Vs. Central Connectict St. Score Update: Wildcats Lead By One At Halftime

The Northwestern Wildcats have faced a surprising challenge in the opening half against Central Connecticut St., as a last second three-pointer from John Shurna gave the Wildcats the 30-29 lead at halftime.

Senior center Luka Mirkovic added six points and a team-high five boards in the opening 20 minutes.
