Last season, Northwestern participated in the Fort Myers Tip-Off event early in the year. This will be the program’s first time playing in the Legends Classic.
The Wildcats struggled on the floor last season, finishing with an 8-23 record, which included a 12-game losing streak late in the year. Northwestern ended with a 3-17 mark in B1G play. It was the worst season the Wildcats have endured under head coach Chris Collins.
Next season’s Legends Classic will feature UConn, USC, Vanderbilt and Notre Dame.
