Penn State Hoops’ Jalen Pickett, Seth Lundy Named To Big Ten All-Tournament Team

Penn State men’s basketball stars Jalen Pickett and Seth Lundy were named to the Big Ten All-Tournament team Sunday night.

The two played an integral role in the Nittany Lions making it all the way to the Big Ten Championship for the first time since 2011.

Pickett averaged 16.5 points, seven rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game throughout the tournament, including a 28-point performance against Indiana in the semifinals. He was sometimes quiet to begin games, but he often came up clutch when the Nittany Lions needed him.

Lundy averaged 17 points and eight rebounds per game over the course of the tournament. He had a double-double in the opening matchup against Illinois, scoring 17 points and bringing down 10 rebounds. He also had 19 points in the loss to Purdue in the championship before fouling out of the game.

The Nittany Lions are the No. 10 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and they’ll play No. 7-seeded Texas A&M on Thursday, March 16, in Des Moines, Iowa. The last time Penn State was the No. 10 seed, it went to the Sweet Sixteen. If Micah Shrewsberry’s squad wants to make a similar run, Pickett and Lundy will no doubt have to play a huge role.
