On Dec. 30, Northwestern basketball hosted Brown and won the game, 95-73.
The win pushed the Wildcats’ record to 10-5 on the season, but the win didn’t occur without its share of negatives. No game ever goes perfectly for a team, but for Northwestern, senior guard Bryant McIntosh went down with a left knee injury in the second half of the contest and fans feared the worst.
One day later, McIntosh got an MRI and he, the team and fans received favorable news.
Northwestern gets good news on the status of guard Bryant McIntosh. School announces MRI on his left knee shows no major ligament damage. He's listed as day to day. Wildcats play host to Nebraska Tuesday.
