    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Drew Crawford scored 21 points Sunday night, reaching the 1,000-point milestone for his Northwestern career, and the Wildcats snapped a two-game losing streak with a 68-56 victory over Penn State.

    Crawford, a junior forward, is the 31st Northwestern player to top 1,000 career points and is the 17th to reach the mark in just three seasons.

    Dave Sobolewski scored a career-high 20 points while John Shurna added 17 for the Wildcats (11-3, 1-1 Big Ten).

    Tim Frazier led Penn State (8-7, 0-2) with 16 points. Jermaine Marshall had 14 and Cammeron Woodyard added 11 for the Nittany Lions.

    Crawford, who has 1,002 career points, hit the milestone with a 3-pointer with 10:07 remaining.

    Both teams resume Big Ten play later this week. Northwestern is home on Wednesday against Illinois while Penn State hosts Purdue on Thursday.
