NIU

Up next for NIU men's basketball

WHO: Central Michigan (9-18, 2-11 Mid-American Conference) at Northern Illinois (5-21, 3-10 MAC)

WHEN: 7 p.m. today

WHERE: NIU Convocation Center

RADIO: 1360 WLBK, 98.9 FM

LAST MEETING: NIU defeated CMU, 74-61, on Jan. 23

SCOUTING THE CHIPPEWAS: Central Michigan has lost 10 straight games, a streak that started with the loss to NIU in Mt. Pleasant. Senior guard Kyle Randall is CMU’s leading scorer at 17.8 points per game.

The Chippewas are last in the MAC in scoring defense, giving up 73 points a contest.

OUTLOOK: Tonight will be the Huskies’ final game at the NIU Convocation Center. Like CMU, the NIU has put together a losing streak of its own, as the Huskies haven’t won since beating Kent State, 67-65, on a last-second Abdel Nader jumper back on Jan. 30. Wednesday’s loss to Eastern Michigan was the NIU’s seventh straight. Freshman guard Mike Davis scored a career-high nine points in the loss to the Eagles.
