Collins vows to build winner at Northwestern

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Chris Collins says he's ready to put his own stamp on a program and vows to build a winner at Northwestern.

The longtime Duke assistant and son of an NBA coach embraced the challenge during Tuesday's introductory news conference. He promised to to do what no Wildcats coach has done and lead the team to the NCAA tournament.

He also insisted the potential to succeed is there despite the outdated facilities and high academic standards.

With his dad Doug watching from the front row, Collins said he's "not afraid of the work that needs to be done."

The school hired Collins last week, hoping he can lead the Wildcats to the NCAA tournament and into the upper echelon of the Big Ten. He replaces Bill Carmody.
