Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State is on the bubble because it is the only team in the Big Ten to have beaten Ohio State this year and it’s done it twice.
The Nittany Lions clobbered OSU earlier this week after narrowly winning in Columbus a couple of weeks ago. The Nittany Lions are among the “Next Four Out” on Joe Lunardi’s latest bracket.
They have won four games in a row, with home wins over Iowa and Maryland and a home win against Illinois before the big victory over OSU.
Tony Carr dropped 30 against OSU after hitting the game-winning three against it in the first matchup. He’s scoring 20 a night on 46 percent from three. Don’t leave him open.
On the night it was retiring Frank Kaminsky’s number 44, Wisconsin played its finest game of the season and took down Purdue, 57–53.
Ethan Happ scored 21 for Wisconsin and Carsen Edwards had 22 of Purdue’s 53 points. He didn’t get much help from anybody else, obviously. He was the only player to make a three-point shot, everybody else combining to go 0-for-7.
This rough stretch of three losses in a row could hurt Purdue’s seeding in the Tournament. There’s also a decent chance it doesn’t, if the Boilermakers can figure things out from here.
But it will make this team better. Things were easy for a long time this season and now there are adjustments to be made. Better now, with some time to spare, than once it’s too late.
