Vine: Penn State’s D.J. Newbill Drills A Three At The Buzzer To Beat Minnesota

While Penn State basketball isn’t a huge draw, Nittany Lions’ guard D.J. Newbill is a legitimate star. No power conference play scores more than Newbill, who averages 20.3 points per game, and today he showed a real flare for the dramatic. With the game tied at 7.6, Newbill sank a contested three to lift Penn State past Minnesota in today’s regular season finale.  Newbill...

Penn State Got Royally Screwed with Worst Foul Call in the History of Basketball

Sports officials have an extremely difficult job and while we can semi-sympathize with the difficulty and pressures of the profession, that smidgen of sympathy is eliminated when they pull crap like this. The average reasonable fan can look past a few missed calls here and there, including subjective block-charge calls or lightning quick out-of-bounds rulings. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Penn State Fans Chanted “Overrated!” At Ohio St G D’Angelo Russell, Who Proceeded To Go Off On The Nittany Lions

The “overrated!” chant is a popular-but-typically-poorly-used chant in the college basketball world. It was used in poor form by Penn State’s student section Wednesday night.  In the first half of the Nittany Lions’ game against Ohio State, fans chanted “overrated!” at Buckeye guard D’Angelo Russell – perhaps the best player in the sport – while he was at the free...

Penn State hockey kisses NCAA at-large hopes goodbye in loss to OSU

There wasn’t a better story in Big Ten hockey than the sudden and surprising rise of Penn State. For most of the league season the Nittany Lions were either leading, sharing the lead or well within striking distance of whomever was leading. It’s just too bad the feel-good story of the Big Ten has turned in to a personal nightmare for the Penn State team. A once promising resume...
