Nittany Lions Topple No. 23 Illinois
Talor Battle puts Penn State ahead by one with .3 seconds left, the Bryce Jordan Center court is stormed, and a delusional sports blogger pats himself on the back for his attempt at inspiring rhetoric.
Stanley Pringle put forth a great effort in the 64-63 win, accounting for 20 points and went 4 for 4 on 3-point attempts. Not a bad birthday at all for #11. Defensive stalwart Jamelle Cornley led with 7 rebounds.
With the win, Penn State secures a first-round bye in the Big Ten tournament and sets a team record with 10 wins in the Big Ten. It’s a step in the right direction for the tournament-hopeful squad, who may get to put on the Tom Jones and let loose this March.
