Northern Illinois Huskies Tickets for Sale

Northern Illinois does not have a lot of rebounding beef up front. 6'-6' junior F/G Todd Peterson (7.4 ppg) is a good scorer and will get a lot more shots this season. 6'-9' senior Jon Byrd is not a scorer, more of a role player, along with 6'-7' sophomore Paige Paulsen and skinny 6'-11' sophomore center James Hughes.

Youth will again reign for the Northern Illinois University men's basketball program as the Huskies have just one rostered senior (Johnathan Byrd) for the upcoming 2004-05 campaign and 10 of 13 players in either their first or second year of eligibility. NI was 8-7 SU/6-7 ATS at home, yet 2-13 SU, 6-7 ATS on the road. Don't look for much improvement over last year's 10-win squad.

The Northern Illinois Huskies had an ugly season (10-20 SU, 12-14 ATS), because of free throw struggles and the worst turnover margin in the MAC. With three starters gone, don't expect much this season. The Huskies lacked height last season and were more of a finesse team. That appears to be the case again, along with youth.

The backcourt is good, with 5'-10' junior Anthony Maestranzi, who is a good playmaker (4.6 apg), and 6'-3' sophomore Mike McKinney, who chipped in 4.6 points as a freshman. 5'-11' sophomore G Ryan Paradise comes off the bench. The backcourt is good, but still young.
