Men’s Basketball Suffers Another Heartbreaker
Ed DeChellis’ team now sits at 0-4 in the Big Ten after losing to the Illini, 53-54, in Champaign.
The Lions outscored Illinois 28-23 in the first period, and held the lead for over ten minutes in the second, only to trip up with 1:16 left in the game. The go-ahead score was enough for the 12-5 Illini, as Penn State finished the game by missing four consecutive jumpers.
It’s looking like it might be a long year for the NIT Champions.
