Northwestern Wins: A College Hoops Blog

An ode to Verne Lundquist’s calls and everything college basketball

About Us

We’re basically just college basketball diehards who watch nothing but hoops all day, every day from November-April when class doesn’t interfere. Our heroes are Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery. We also love Verne Lundquist for botching the call of the greatest moment in Northwestern State basketball history.

    Nobody’s better than Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery, except for Dick Enberg of course. Give him some love too!!!

    Lundquist’s forgot the “state” but it was still a memorable call! To me, it’s up there with Gus Johnson’s “The Runner” (the slipper still fits!).

    Great Blog guys. As a Davidson guy I am sure you have underestimated how good we still are, but time will show you, and all will be right in the universe.

  5. Great site, keep it up!

    Check out this UWM Basketball Blog if you get a free chance…. or maybe it just won’t be interesting enough until the Panthers of Milwaukee battle back to national visibility.. lol. It might just be this or next year!

    Take it easy, and keep the articles rolling.

  6. Great blog guys. Clearly Patrick is the smartest of the group since he has Minn considered for his top 25! I stumbled upon this, was happy to see a Gopher Nation link and most importantly love to see a blog inspired by a win over Iowa.

    I too am a total basketball junkie and watch BB as often as my wif lets me. Go mid-majors and go Gophers!

    Gopher Nation

    on a side note, I’ll be moving GopherNation to a new blog and will reciprocate a link when we get set up.
