NU gets tough first-round game in NCAA soccer

The Northwestern men's soccer team got a dubious reward for winning both the Big Ten regular-season and conference tournaments titles this season.

The Wildcats drew a Thursday game at defending national champion Akron in the first round of the NCAA Division I tournament.

Indiana (16) was the only Big Ten team to get a seed and its accompanying first-round bye.

Four other Illinois teams made the tournament, for which the bracket was announced Monday.

Western Illinois plays at Northern Illinois Thursday afternoon, and Loyola goes to Bradley Thursday night.
