Battle Makes History in Rout of Northwestern

For just the second time in a decade, the Big Ten has a 2,000 career point scorer. Just five minutes into the game, Talor Battle hit a 3 point shot over Northwestern’s Davide Curletti to move his career point total to 2,002. He finished the day with a game-leading 19 points, bringing his career total to 2,015.

That proved to be the most interesting part of the game by far, as a hot-shooting Nittany Lion team quickly blew past the Northwestern Wildcats, holding them to a season low 15 points in the first half and posting a final score of 65-41. Penn State shot 49% from the field and had double-digit point contributions from David Jackson, Jeff Brooks, and Tim Frasier.

The only real downsides to the game were the 2 total points that Andrew Jones posted, and the poor showing for the student section at the game. The total attendance was 11,239, but I would be surprised if 2,000 of those were student tickets. Hopefully we get a better showing on Thursday when #25 Minnesota comes to the BJC. That game shouldn’t be anywhere near the walk in the park that yesterday’s game was.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
