It only gets worse, as each Penn State starter reached double-digit scoring. The Hoosiers have made many mediocre teams look great this season. The Nittany Lions are now 14-14 and have surpassed I.U. in the BIG rankings at 8-9 after the 83-74 College Station beating. The Hoosiers stand 14-13 and 6-10 with seemingly unbeatable Wisconsin next on the schedule. Even the NIT looks inviting. 

It was the same sad story: 2-15 from three, 14-25 from the line, and 12 turnovers. Malik Reneu had 27, Kel’el Ware 16, and Trey Galloway 11, but not much production from anyone else. Everything was coming up “Aces” for Penn State, as Ace Baldwin, Jr. contributed 23 to go with Oudus Wahab’s double-double. The only “Magic” came from Puff (The Magic) Johnson who hit a jumper with 9:04 remaining to push the Nittany Lions over the 60-mark first, 61-54. Just like in the Nebraska game, I.U. had rallied to pull within striking range at 56-54, but then ran out of gas. Indiana owns the all-time series record at 42-17 but Penn State has won the last four.

The Badgers will probably make things even worse when they come to Bloomington in three days.
