Rapid Reaction: Northwestern drops fourth straight game in 82-58 blowout to Georgetown

Defense and rebounding win games. Unfortunately, Northwestern struggled mightily in both categories Sunday afternoon.

The Wildcats (3-5, 0-0 B1G) fell to visiting Georgetown (7-1, 0-0 Big East), 82-58, in a game where the home squad led for just 16 seconds. The Hoyas utterly dominated Northwestern on the glass (especially in the first half), winning the rebound battle, 35-25. That included 13 offensive rebounds, which led to 13 second-chance points. Georgetown also got to the line far more often, shooting 28 free throws compared to just 16 for Northwestern.

The ‘Cats’ offense was led by Caroline Lau and Caileigh Walsh, who scored 11 and 13 points, respectively.
