This Week in Penn State Sports

With the nets cut down, 36 ecstatic buses of fans, alumni, and well-wishers returned to State College late last night.  Senior Jamelle Cornley, named MVP of the tournament, led the Lions with 18 points and 7 rebounds.  Sophomore Talor Battle was named to the All-Tournament team, capping the fifth-best scoring season in the history of Penn State basketball.  This is PSU’s second post-season championship in program history.  A heartfelt congratulations goes out to seniors Jamelle Cornley, Stanley Pringle, Danny Morrissey, and Will Leiner for putting the Happy back in the Valley during basketball season.

Off the hard-court and onto the baseball diamond, the Nitts sustained a tough loss to Kent State on Wednesday, stranding 6 runners in the final two innings in a 4-3 grudge match.  At 12:05 tomorrow, the Lions will travel to Ann Arbor to take on defending Big Ten Champion Michigan.  The game will be aired on the Big Ten Network.

In women’s lacrosse, Stephanie Ellis was named Defensive Player of the Week by the American Lacrosse Conference (ALC).  Through nine matches, Ellis has only surrendered 8.33 goals per game for the nation’s sixth-ranked defense.  More challenges await this junior goalkeeper this weekend as the team travels to Ohio State to take on #2 Maryland today and #4 North Carolina on Sunday.

As always…Roar, lions, roar.
