This Week in Penn State Sports

This was a HUGE week for Penn State men’s basketball!  Despite being snubbed from the field of 65, the Lions are making the most of their berth in the National Invitation Tournament.  After a scare on Tuesday at the hand of George Mason, Battle’s Battalion came out flying against Rhode Island yesterday, shooting a season-best 87.1% from the free-throw line.

The Nitts continue their postseason quest on Sunday versus the winner of the Florida and Miami quarterfinal game.

In other news, two Nittany Lions were crowned National Champions in fencing today.  Aleksander Ochocki won the sabre competition, while Nick Chinman took first in foil.  The Lady Lions will take their stance tomorrow in competition at the Ashenfelter Multi-Sport Facility.  The team is currently ranked first in the overall team standings.

Men’s gymnast Casey Sandy was nominated for the Nissen-Emery Award.  Sandy completed a stellar senior season by winning the Big Ten and NCAA all-round championships.  Having already secured a spot on the Canadian National Team roster, this seven-time All-American looks to add the Heisman trophy of men’s gymnastics to his résumé.

If you can peel your eyes from March Madness this weekend, keep an eye on Penn State at the NCAA Wrestling championships, as four Lions are within one win of attaining All-America status.

Coming off two straight losses, the men’s volleyball has huge games tonight versus IPFW and tomorrow versus #15 Loyola-Chicago.  Let’s hope that the defending Nationals Champions can get rolling again.
