Northwestern on a roll with 61-52 victory over No. 20 Michigan

20 Michigan on Tuesday night at Allstate Arena — NU’s best victory of the season — Collins was heavy on the sarcasm when he spoke to reporters.

Michigan (19-7, 8-5), which beat Northwestern 58-47 in another low-scoring affair eight days ago, made only 5 of 20 shots in the second half this time around.

After a slow start, the Wildcats came out firing in the opening three minutes of the second half to take their first lead and never looked back.

Bryant McIntosh tied a season high with 24 points and Scottie Lindsey added 19.

The Wildcats seem to have turned a corner, but fans may wonder if it’s too late to make an Ncaa Tournament push with six games remaining.

The victory over Michigan is Northwestern’s only one against a ranked opponent, and the Wildcats are 1-8 against the top 100 RPI (Ratings Percentage Index).

However, Collins is reminding his players there’s time left to make an impression on the NCAA tournament selection committee.
