Northwestern vs. Brown final score: Wildcats roll over Bears, 63-42

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Northwestern drained 13 three-pointers on Sunday to pick up a comfortable 21-point win over the Brown Bears.

Powered by a balanced offensive effort from all five starters, the Northwestern Wildcats made quick work of the Brown Bears, 63-42, on Sunday afternoon at Welsh-Ryan Arena.

The Wildcats shot out to a quick 15-0 lead after making five early three-pointers, and never once allowed the Bears to move within eight points over the remainder of the game. Sophomore guard Dave Sobolewski led the way with a team-high 14 points on 5-for-9 shooting, and was one of six Northwestern players to make at least one three-pointer before the final buzzer. Sobolewski also chipped in eight assists, a number which represented his highest total since. Nov. 15.

Along with forcing 12 Brown turnovers and finishing the day with 13 made three-pointers on 24 attempts, Bill Carmody's team held the Bears to just 30.6 percent shooting. Despite suffering a narrow two-point loss to Stanford on Friday, the Wildcats will now enter Big Ten at 9-4 overall. Northwestern will open with the undefeated Michigan Wolverines on Jan. 3 at Welsh-Ryan Arena.
