    Each week this winter quarter I recap how Northwestern alumni preform in their respective leagues. While Northwestern doesn’t have any basketball alums playing in the NBA, there are four playing overseas and one in the NBA D-League. This week one alum hit a game-winning layup with less than three seconds left to earn him player of the week honors.
