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.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”

Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
