Northwestern without guard Cobb
Cobb had started all eight of the Wildcats' games, averaging 5.1 points. That's well down from last season, when he averaged 12.2 for Northwestern.
Entering Sunday's game on a three-game losing streak and without Cobb, Northwestern made two changes to its lineup. Back in the starting five were freshmen Bryant McIntosh and Vic Law, while Cobb was out and Dave Sobolewski came off the bench.
