OT: Penn State and Indiana Fall in College Hoops

Submitted by HartAttack20 on November 19th, 2009 at 10:44 PM

UNC-Wilmington beat PSU pretty easily in an 80-69 win, and Indiana lost to Ole Miss 89-71. The Indiana loss is totally understandable as Mississippi probably has a decent team and program, but the PSU loss is pretty bad. UNC-Wilmington? Really? Looks like Penn State had a terrible shooting night with only 32% of all their shots dropping, and that is compared to UNCW's 57.4%. I'm kind of confused as to why PSU would play at UNCW, too. You would think that they could get the home matchup in this one, but maybe they wanted a road game early. Also, it looks like UNC is having their way with OSU so far. It would be nice for the Big Ten to win this game, but I never root for rivals in that situation anyways. Overall, it is not looking like a good night so far for the Big Ten. OSU could come back, but I don't see it happening. Thoughts?

By the way, I got those stats off of ESPN.com

...not good for the B10 but I think the conference will be strong. Tough to root for OSU, especially this week, but you want the conference to look good. Maybe the start of an OSU cross-sport losing streak?

Just win Saturday

and UNC is having their way with OSU. I think we've found the way to beat osu in bball: get them in foul trouble. the only problem is that we don't have the physical size to pound the ball and draw fouls...
