NIT: Northwestern Barely Focused on Akron, or Even This Year

According to the Chicago Tribune article "previewing" tonight's NIT game, the focus has already shifted to next season and whether Bill Carmody will still be in charge. Then again, the players did say they talked about Akron on Sunday night. Probably before discussing transfer plans in case of a coaching change. The Chicago Sun-Times says that Luka Mirkovic will not play in the NIT, thanks to a nagging ankle injury. That makes the starting lineup and the bench for the Wildcats significantly shorter. My guess is that Davide Curletti will get the start to counter Akron's height, leaving Northwestern with few choices at forward on the bench.
