November 24, 1978 - Steve Markle’s jumper in the closing seconds lifts Northwestern to a 57-55 comeback victory over Brandywine in its season opener. The Tigers trail by seven points at the half before rallying over the final two frames. Tied late in the game, Chuck Koenig controls the tap on a jump ball and Markle drains a 16-footer to produce the win. Scott Stoudt finishes with a game-high 19 points for the winners, while Steve Kohler contributes 14. Markle’s game-winner allows him to reach double figures as he ends with 10.
