Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State isn’t on the national scene, not as a NCAA Tournament team, at least.
But that’s what the Nittany Lions have been playing like over the last three weeks. PSU is 4–1 in its last five games. It has won at Ohio State, which is OSU’s only conference loss, destroyed Rutgers and Iowa and taken care of Maryland.
Their only loss was an eight-point defeat at the Breslin Center against mighty Michigan State.
The Nittany Lions like to score it. Tony Carr averages close to 20 a game to lead the team and Lamar Stevens gets over 15 as his wingman. Three more guys average double-figures after Stevens and the team shoots 38 percent from three.
Illinois Fighting Illini
Penn State has risen to the top half of the Big Ten Conference standings while Illinois has made little progress at the bottom.
The Illini won two games in a row after losing their first nine conference games. They beat Indiana and Rutgers, both at home, but then dropped the next two at OSU and home to Wisconsin.
This isn’t a very good team that shouldn’t be favored against a hot PSU team. Illinois can probably be a pick because it’s at home and the Nittany Lions aren’t world-beaters but keep an eye on the number. PSU is worth a play if it gets more than a few.
