WATCH: Eaves and Sims hit ridiculous threes, but Chicago State falls short at Northwestern

Chicago State caught fire Wednesday, making 13 of 26 3-point attempts. But the Cougars fell 68-64 in their upset bid at Northwestern (8-2).

The Cougars led 52-50 with seven minutes left, but the game appeared over when Gavin Skelly’s layup extended Northwestern’s lead to 64-58 with 1:01 to go.

Then Cougars sophomore Anthony Eaves hit this ridiculous rainbow trey from well beyond the arc to give Chicago State (3-7) some hope.

One possession later, Cougars leading scorer Fred Sims Jr. drained an equally ridiculous 3-pointer over the outstretched arms of 6’7″ forward Vic Law. Sims is only 6’4″.

Sims led Chicago State with 22 points, and all seven of his field goals were 3-pointers. Eaves added 12 points off the bench while forward Trayvon Palmer had another double-double with 18 points and 11 boards.
