Purdue vs. Penn State

Purdue vs. Penn State Purdue vs. Penn State

As they sat in the locker room and watched in and Michigan State play a four-overtime thriller, coach Kim Barnes Arico said they were cheering after every basket, hoping one team would win so they could take the court. From nearing the fray that is the offseason coaching carousel back in early-January, to finding themselves on the NCAA Tournament bubble a month later, the Nittany Lions ended the season on the wrong note. Kelsey Mitchell scored 22 points, Stephanie Mavunga added 18 and No. 13 Ohio State cruised into the Big Ten Conference Tournament semifinals for the fifth straight year with an 82-57 quarterfinal win over Rutgers. "We laid it on the floor, and Penn State just made more plays in the last 4 minutes".

The Lions were without their best big man in Mike Watkins and the Buckeyes had a strong end to the season. Meanwhile, Scottie Lindsey wasted possessions with contested threes with time left on the shot clock and tough runners when a better look was available.

Just how hard is it? All six other teams made the tournament. With 3:15 remaining, Lindsey was called for a charging foul on a soft floater from five feet, fouling out and spending the last game of his storied career on the bench.

The Lions almost beat Purdue two weeks ago with Watkins limited for most of the game because of foul trouble and at various points this season Penn State looked like a team that could hang with just about anyone.

If Lunardi says that Penn State is out, than that is more than likely the case.

"The time for cute is over, and the time for playing more of getting pucks on the goaltender and crashing the net is now", he said.

Moore isn't the flashiest player on the roster, but his 135 games of experience bring a lot of intangible value to a young team.

Area health officials hope 'worst is behind us' for hard-hitting flu season
Thorough hand-washing, coughing and sneezing etiquette and getting the flu shot all help reduce the spread of the virus. FluMist, which delivers a weakened version of the flu through the nose should be ready by next year's flu season.

"Credit my teammates for finding me and the coaches for putting me in position to make plays", said Vince Edwards, who recently missed a pair of games with an ankle injury. John Harrar grabbed six rebounds while playing 11 minutes, both career highs.

It was over when: Penn State's Shep Garner forced the Keita Bates-Diop turnover with 17 seconds left. "We're 1-0 with fender benders", Chambers said. "It's something we've always been working on, and it pays off after awhile".

That Friday night massacre was a surprise considering the Gophers were on a 6-1-1 roll and needed only one point to secure home ice for the quarterfinals. He scored an emphatic 25 points on 10-of-20 shooting with 5 rebounds and 2 blocks.

On the season, Purdue basketball averages 81.7 points, 35.0 rebounds and 17.2 assists per game.

"It was huge for us". "We knew it was a key to the game like it has been the last couple times, and it worked out for us".

Coming into the night, the Gophers were something like 100% to make the tournament by winning at least one game this weekend, and 97% to make it if they were swept again.

We'll see if the Nittany Lions can continue their run this afternoon when they take on Purdue at 4:30 p.m.at Madison Square Garden.
