Basketball Slumps

Courtesy of http://gopsusports.cstv.comIn front of a near-sellout crowd at the Jordan Center, the men’s team faltered yesterday, losing to Wisconsin for the second time this season, 54-44. This loss comes after the recent drubbing at the hands of Michigan on Thursday.

It appears that the Lions are in a funk.

At the game, three-point shooting, a staple of all the men’s wins this season was absent, with no made threes. Additionally, in a bizarre diversion from the norm, foul shooting was not painfully bad.

At this point though, it’d be nicer to have the threes and a close win due to agonizingly bad free throw shooting than a loss where the team shot well from the line. Hopes of making the NCAA Tournament appear to be getting more and more farfetched as we continue to lose. With a tough schedule in the weeks ahead, hopefully the Lions can pull it together and reclaim the shooting touch they had at Michigan St last Sunday.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
