Lions Knock Off Rams – Make NIT Quarterfinals

Stanley Pringle scored 19 points in a 83-72 rout of the University of Rhode Island Rams to take the Penn State men’s basketball team to an NIT quarterfinal match against the winner of the Florida – University of Miami game. Andrew Jones III had an incredible game, scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds. The Nittany Lions never trailed, leading by 13 points at the half and winning handily despite scoring their last field goal with 8: 53 remaining. Solid foul shooting kept the lead out of reach for the Rams.

However the win may have come at a cost – Talor Battle limped off with an ankle injury during the second period. The Lions are banged up heading into the next round – Forward Jamelle Cornley did not play due to the shoulder injury he suffered against George Mason University Tuesday.

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.”
