On Wednesday, the Huskies came away with an impressive 74-61 win at Central Michigan, with Abdel Nader scoring a game-high 23 points. They followed that up with a rough 42-25 loss at Eastern Michigan Saturday.

Wrestling: NIU couldn't snap their losing streak Saturday, as they fell to #7 Missouri and Eastern Michigan. In the first half of the doubleheader, the Huskies dropped a close 22-17 decision to EMU. They followed that up with a 39-3 loss to the nationally-ranked Tigers.

Gymnastics: Northern Illinois suffered their first loss of the season Friday night, as they were ousted by Ball State, 192.475-192.075. NIU outscored BSU in three events and Megan Melendez won the balance beam, but it was not enough against the Cardinals.

Track & Field: NIU posted several great individual performances at the Indiana Relays. Rebecca Cronin won the 600 meters on Friday, while Sidra Sherrill inched closer to breaking the school's indoor shot put record with a 46-09.00 (14.25m) toss.

Men's Basketball: Northern Illinois dropped two conference games during the past week. On Wednesday, the Huskies lost to preseason conference favorite Ohio, 81-63, despite four NIU players scoring in double figures. Northern closed out the week with a 71-34 loss at home to Western Michigan where the Huskies shot just 20 percent from the field.

Women's Basketball: The Huskies are still looking for their first conference win after losing two last week. NIU led at halftime against Akron on Wednesday, but an 18-2 Zip run to start the second sent the Huskies to a 63-52 loss. It was a similar story on Saturday afternoon in Mt. Pleasant, Mich. where Northern dropped an 83-56 contest against Central Michigan.

Wrestling: NIU pushed #12 Central Michigan, but could not pull off the upset Friday in a 23-12 loss to the Chippewas. Wins by Nick Smith, Kevin Fanta and Andrew Morse put the Huskies up 9-7 at halftime, but it was not enough against CMU's strong upper weight wrestlers.
