Men’s Basketball Wins? Wi-ins? What is “Win”?
Mere hours after we posted about a call for Ed DeChellis’ firing, Penn State Men’s Basketball wins its first conference game of the season, snapping a 12 game losing streak. So who did they take down? Never-been-to-the-tournament-but-hopeful Northwestern.
David Jackson and Chris Babb scored 20 points each as Penn State snapped a 12-game losing streak with an 81-70 victory over Northwestern on Wednesday night, dealing perhaps a fatal blow to the Wildcats’ NCAA tournament chances.
While the win doesn’t get us out of the bottom of the Big Ten, it’s much better than losing thirteen games in a row. It’s not like they can tank the rest of the season for better odds in a draft lottery. So we’ll be content if the team turns things around to muster “bad season” instead of “worst season ever.”
