PENN STATE NITTANY LIONS RUMORS & GOSSIP
Conference wins in the Big Ten don’t come easy. But road conference wins? Forget about it. At least, that’s what it’s felt like in Minnesota over the past two seasons, where we’ve most recently seen the Gophers endure an 8-game road losing streak. That all ended on Wednesday night as Minnesota came from behind to […]
Not long ago, in the late oughts for instance, a Big Ten basketball game between the Golden Gophers and Penn State Nittany Lions had great potential to be a dreadful affair. Sure, there could be some excitement, like when Lawrence Westbrook ripped the soul out of all 37 fans in attendance in Happy Valley.
Penn State's Tim Frazier and DJ Newbill entered as one of the country's best backcourt duos. They left Illinois with a loss after subpar performances.
Tim Frazier scored 19 points and Allen Roberts added 17 as Penn State held Monmouth to 22 second-half points and defeated the Hawks 84-52 Tuesday night.
The Nittany Lions (5-1) won their fourth straight game with another balanced scoring attack as Frazier and Roberts were joined by D.J. Newbill (15 points) and Ross Travis (11) in double figures.
Frazier, with seven assists, became...

Penn State's Patrick Chambers is comfortable looking ahead because of one player in particular who is coming back.
The Nittany Lions coach has a two-year record of 22-41 that includes a 6-30 mark in the Big Ten, yet he shows no trepidation about saying that he want this year's squad to finish in the top half of the conference.
His optimism stems from the return of point...

Penn State may have taken a step back last season from a wins and losses perspective, but the rebuilding effort being led by Pat Chambers continues to move along at a program with little historical success on the hardwood.
If there is such a thing as a competitive two-win Big Ten team, Penn State fit the bill a season ago. The Nittany Lions struggled to find their footing after...
This may be some exaggeration, but this feels like a big time victory for Herb Sendek and his coaching staff. Monday, ASU announced transfer guard Jermaine Marshall would be heading to the Sun Devils from Penn State. In the mix as well were North Carolina, Creighton, and Florida State.
Jermaine Marshall, a talented guard who is transferring from Penn State, has ASU listed as one of his schools he is interested in attending for his senior season, according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.
Penn State basketball was supposed to have a chance in 2013-14, a chance to be a challenger for an upper division finish in the Big Ten. Well, that assumption took a massive hit on Wednesday as star guard Jermaine Marshall announced he is forgoing his senior season and instead will take his talents into the professional ranks.
It just won't be the NBA, as he missed...
All good things must come to an end, and hopefully on Saturday, that includes the home careers of Trevor Mbakwe, Rodney Williams, Julian Welch, and Andre Ingram. We don't want to see them go. Rodney Williams soaring through air and Trevor Mbakwe's chest pounding dunks will be sorely missed. But if we do see them play another game in venerable Williams Arena, it means something...

PURSUIT OF JUSTICE
The man known as Victim 1 in the Jerry Sandusky case is suing Penn State for damages, claiming they didn't do enough to stop him.
As the final July evaluation period closed, several verbal commitments of note popped off prior to and during the period. Perhaps the most important commitment was 5-10 point guard Kahlil Dukes to the USC Trojans. Dukes, a scorer from Capital Prep (CT), played particularly well in Las Vegas for his Connecticut Basketball Club team, and will [...]
