    CHICAGO -- Dave Sobolewski scored 17 of his career-high 25 points in the first half and Drew Crawford added 18 as Northwestern routed Illinois-Chicago 93-58 on Wednesday night.

    Northwestern (2-2) opened the game with a 17-4 lead on Sanjay Lumpkin's layup and JerShon Cobb's 3-pointer extended the lead to 20-6 as the Wildcats led wire to wire.

    Jordan Harks led Illinois-Chicago (1-3) with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Marc Brown, who averaged 21.7 points in the first three games, was held to seven points.

    Northwestern tied the all-time series at 4-4, rebounding from last season's home loss to the Flames.

    Sobolewski sparked the Wildcats with 13 points in the first 11:13 of the game. He also connected on back-to-back 3-pointers with Crawford to extend the lead to 39-14. The Flames trailed by as many as 29 in the first half as Northwestern was 7-for-12 from 3-point range in the half.

    Northwestern led 47-22 at the half. Crawford scored eight points.

    Sobolewski was a high school teammate of Frank Kaminsky at Benet High School in Lisle, Ill., who set a Wisconsin school record with 43 points in a win against North Dakota. He made all six 3-point attempts. Sobolewski was 4-for-6 from 3-point range in the first half.

    Northwestern rebounded from back-to-back losses to Stanford and a home loss to Illinois State on Sunday.
