With all the football buzz, it would be easy to miss this article John Sahly filed on the NIU women's basketball team's start under first-year head coach Kathi Bennett. Here's an appetizer to entice you for the full meal:

Defensively, Bennett said from the day she was hired that NIU's identity would be on defense. So far, it's been a process. The Huskies started Sunday in the middle of the pack in scoring defense in the conference.

"I almost feel like, to be honest with you, the winning hurt us," Bennett said. "And the UIC loss helped us. From that loss, I felt it turn a little bit. The best game was the Northern Iowa game (a 71-64 road win), by far. I thought the UIC game, you always want to learn from a loss, and that humbled us a little bit."

The Huskies are 5-4, and continue non-conference play at Northwestern, Wednesday.
