Penn State Basketball alumnus: Frazier’s Surprising NBA Debut

Tim Frazier ended his NBA debut last night with a few rare accomplishments. The former Penn State point guard became the first Nittany Lion alumnus to play in the NBA since Calvin Booth with the Sacramento Kings in 2009, according to Black Shoe Diaries. The most stunning of Frazier’s accomplishments includes that he was the only player in the last 30 years to have double-digit...

Big 10 Basketball Preview: #11 Penn State

Now Tim Frazier, like Talor Battle is gone.  The next version may have just arrived in University Park (more on him later) but for now at least the cupboard isn't totally bare as the Nittany Lions bring back an all-league player (I assume, I didn't look this up) in D.J. Newbill, the second leading returning scorer in the conference at 17.8 points per game.  Newbill doesn't have...

Badgers preparing for both potential Big-Ten tourney opponents

MADISON, Wis. -- It has become a custom of sorts for Wisconsin to spend its week of the Big Ten tournament practicing for two opponents. That's because the Badgers, who earned an opening-round bye for the 14th consecutive season, won't know exactly which team they'll face until Thursday night. Second-seeded Wisconsin (25-6, 12-6 Big Ten) plays the winner of No. 7 Minnesota (19-12...

Sam Thompson swats Tim Frazier’s shot, ball travels 3/4 length of the court afterwards

Sam Thompson undoubtedly has some of the best hops in college basketball and he showed that on Thursday night. In a loss at Penn State, Thompson rose up to swat Tim Frazier so strongly that the ball traveled 3/4 the length of the court before a Nittany Lion retrieved the ball. An NBA team is probably going to wind up using a second-round pick on the 6’7” junior just off of his...

''I think we were mad,'' Chambers said, emphasizing that his team had been thumped by Iowa and Nebraska in its previous two games. ''It just happened to be Ohio State tonight. We came out...

Video: Penn State Fans Rush The Court After Huge Upset Win Over Ohio State

Penn State basketball doesn’t have a ton of big pelts to hang on the wall, but they picked up a pretty big upset tonight, knocking off No. 22 Ohio State 65-63.  Guards DJ Newbill and Tim Frazier combined for 39 points in the win. Penn State took the lead on a Geno Thorpe free throw with 6:38 remaining in the game, and relied on some stingy defense to hold on to the tight lead...

Video: Ohio St's Sam Thompson blocks shot into the backcourt

Usually, it’s some absurd offensive play (a dunk), that makes the highlight reels for Ohio State junior forward Sam Thompson. Thursday night, against Penn State, it was just the opposite – Thompson made an incredibly athletic defensive play that has Buckeyes fans talking. Late in the first half, Nittany Lions guard Tim Frazier drove the lane and tried to throw up a floater over...

Penn State cannot complete the upset vs. Iowa

[Photo: Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports] The Penn State Nittany Lions led the 16th ranked Iowa Hawkeyes 33-31 at the half. That would be all she wrote for Penn State as the Hawkeyes would take control and go on to an 82-70 victory. A win today for the Nittany Lions would make their week complete as they defeated Indiana earlier this week 66-65 on a Tim Frazier game winning layup. Regardless...
