Nets Snare Bulls
One night after drubbing the Orlando Magic, the Bulls suffered a setback against the New Jersey Nets, losing 111-99. Chicago managed to maintain a two-possession lead throughout the latter half of the third quarter, but turned ice cold at the start of the final period. The Bulls scored only four points in the next 6:30, while Devin Harris and the Nets poured on the offense. Harris alone finished with 19 points in the fourth (42 for the game), compared to a team total of 21 for Chicago. Ben Gordon led six Bulls into double figures with 17 on the night, and Tyrus Thomas had a double-double with 13 points and 11 boards.

College Basketball
DePaul almost broke through in a big way against no. 12 Villanova, but the Wildcats made their free throws down the stretch to earn the 74-72 victory and keep the Blue Demons winless in the Big East.

Northwestern had little trouble defeating the Indiana Hoosiers, 75-53, shooting better than 56 percent from the field and a from behind the arc.

Notre Dame rallied in the second half to overtake the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 70-65, as they look forward to a Saturday matchup with no. 2 UConn.

NIU broke the Western Michigan Broncos with a 78-63 win, holding their opponent to just 15 first-half points.
