For 39 minutes and 46 seconds, Jon Graham was having one of his best games as a Nittany Lion. The freshman forward likely wishes he could have back the 11.4 seconds that followed. In that time, Graham missed two free throws that would have extended a one point lead then fouled Northwestern's John Shurna with 2.6 seconds remaining. Shurna made both of his foul shots to give Northwestern a 67-66 win over Penn State.
The Academy Awards are tonight, but if you’re looking for last-minute advice in your Oscar pool, well, we’re not here to help you. That would be far too easy. But we here at Onward State have quite the assemblage of movie buffs, and we figured it would be far more interesting to go around the table for the second year in a row and pick who we think should win. No, our votes don’t count, but they probably should. So whether you’re hoping that Billy Crystal, veteran host, can turn the Oscars into an enjoyable 4 hour affair or whether you’re hoping that Sacha Baron Cohen crashes the red carpet to make things interesting, we hope you’ll indulge us as we walk you through our favorites in film of the past year.
