Alex Wolf finds his outside shot in Broncos' win over Northern Illinois
KALAMAZOO — Alex Wolf hadn’t hit more than two 3-pointers in a game all season. He hadn’t scored more than 12 points, either. At some point in the 5-foot-11 walk-on’s career, that would have been OK. But Western Michigan University’s men’s basketball team needs more from the senior, once-pudgy Parchment native-turned-team leader. Saturday, in a game the Broncos couldn’t afford to lose, Wolf found his outside shot, hitting 4 of 6 3-pointers and scoring 14 points in WMU’s win over Northern Illinois. “A lot of it had to do with just running the floor really hard,” Wolf said. “Our bigs were seeing the floor really well today.
“That first one went down, it’s just a great feeling.” Wolf entered the game shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc (12-for-35). But until hitting 2 of 4 in Wednesday’s loss at Toledo, he was just 1-for-7 from long range over WMU’s previous four games. “He was big today,” teammate Nate Hutcheson said of Wolf.
