Bulls Whip WarriorsThe Chicago predicta-Bulls earned another home victory on Wednesday, defeating the Golden State Warriors 110-88. This time Chicago fell behind early, surrendering 20 points in the first five and a half minutes, before propelling themselves into the lead with a 26-8 scoring run. Recently acquired John Salmons and Brad Miller led the scoring with 23 and 19, respectively, and Joakim Noah had a nice outing with 14 points, 17 boards and four blocked shots. Chicago has been thriving at home as of late, winning its last four contests at the UC by an average of 15 points. Conversely, the Bulls have lost their last four road games by the same average margin. The good news? The Bulls play 12 of their remaining 20 games at home, including Friday's matchup with Milwaukee.

Northwestern made a plea to the selection committee with a 64-61 road win over the no. 20 Purdue Boilermakers, and extended their winning streak to three games.

DePaul was dismantled by the West Virginia Mountaineers, 82-63, spoiling Will Walker's brilliant 31-point performance.

NIU fell to the Eastern Michigan Eagles, 75-61, as the Huskies shot a scant 35 percent from the field and misfired frequently from long-range, converting only 5 of 21 three-point attempts.
