Northwestern will have just three chances to notch road/neutral-court non-conference victories next season.
Coach Bill Carmody's Wildcats will take on Baylor in Waco, Texas, on Dec. 4 and two yet-to-be-determined opponents in the South Padre Island Invitational on Nov. 23 and 24. Baylor is expected to be strong despite losing its frontcourt of Quincy Miller, Quincy Acy and Perry Jones III to the NBA.
Northwestern will host a few “name” opponents -- Maryland (ACC/Big Ten Challenge) on Nov. 27, UIC on Dec. 1, Butler on Dec. 8, Stanford on Dec. 21 and Brown on Dec. 23.
The Wildcats also will host Texas Southern (Nov. 13 season opener), Mississippi Valley State, Fairleigh Dickinson, Delaware State and Texas State.
