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...

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...

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.
