Instant Analysis

It’s going to be a long game for Northwestern’s offense if the jump shots aren’t falling. One thing to look out for is the fact that Boise State runs a ton of pick-and-rolls and is top 100 in the country off those sets, per ShotQuality.

Northwestern is 212th in the country in PPP allowed off of the pick-and-roll. So, this is a really good matchup for the Broncos.
