Northwestern Vs. Baylor Final Score: Wildcats Fall, 69-41

Northwestern had a tough time against nationally ranked Baylor.

Northwestern shot the ball poorly and had no answer for the Baylor Bears' interior scoring en route to a 69-41 loss on Sunday. The Wildcats missed 22 of 26 three-point attempts during the game, and stars Drew Crawford and John Shurna were limited to a combined 26 points on 35 shots from the field.

Baylor had similar struggles from beyond the three-point line, but their success inside the arc defined their offense and paved the way to an easy victory; they were just 4-22 from three but made 25 of 30 two-point attempts. Quincy Acy led Baylor with 16 points on 8-10 shooting, while Perry Jones III added 12 points on 5-8 shooting.

The Wildcats will be back in action on Dec. 15 when they host Texas Southern.
