Penn State vs. Purdue


But then Denis Smirnov picked up his second point of the night, a tight angle shot that beat Mat Robson past the pipe.

That was the game, Minnesota would take the lead 11:13 into regulation, the first lead the Gophers have had in ages against the Nittany Lions, but it would last just four minutes before Cole Hults scored his first goal since early in the season to tie the game up.

Josh Reaves made two free throws with 48 seconds left and put Penn State ahead by a point on a slam dunk with five seconds left to lead the Nittany Lions to a 69-68 upset win over 13th-ranked Ohio State on Friday night in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament at Madison Square Garden in NY.

"They talk about [Quadrant] 1 wins", Penn State coach Pat Chambers said.

Penn State may have the look of an NCAA Tournament worthy team - especially considering that forward Mike Watkins was out with an injury for its Big Ten Tournament run to the semifinal round - but the resume is what the NCAA selection committee will be looking at.

"He's a great player and it's hard to stop him when he can score on all three levels", Bates-Diop, who recorded 25 points said.

Along with his 25 points, Carr contributed six rebounds and five assists for the upset-happy Nittany Lions. His heave came nowhere near going in. Lamar Stevens poured in 15 points against Ohio State and eight against Northwestern. Reaves finished with 13.

Complicating the matter is the fact that the virus can remain commutable both in the air and on solid surfaces for two hours. People first develop a fever, then may have a cough, runny nose and watery eyes, followed by appearance of the rash.

Kam Williams and Jae'Sean Tate each added 10 points for the Buckeyes, who will wait for their invitation to the NCAA Tournament in a little more than a week.

Coach Chris Holtmann noted that the Buckeyes altered their game plan a bit in Watkins absence. He also only shot one free throw, a testament to how disciplined Purdue's defense was in defending him in the lane. Edwards leads in rebounds with 7.5 while Mathias tops in assists with 4.3 per game. Purdue will have to match their intensity and contain Carr if they want to advance to the tournament finals for the second time in three years.

The Buckeyes understandably started playing through their star once he got going. Bates-Diop made an impressive dunk and Andrew Dakich stole the ball on the inbound. He regrouped in the second half and got aggressive, finishing 10-for-20 from the floor.

Ohio State grabbed a 68-64 lead with 1:54 left but would watch it wither away down the stretch. From there Carr handled the ball, and with time winding down, found Reaves cutting from the wing for an easy dunk.

Flaherty and Thome ignited things right off the bat as they combined for the first 13 points and a 13-4 lead. Ohio State would have other plans. Nine offensive rebounds led to 14 second-chance points for the Nittany Lions in the first half, and 33-32 lead at the break.

The game starts around 4:30 p.m. ET (20 minutes after the conclusion of Michigan vs Michigan State, which starts at 2 p.m. ET) and will be broadcast nationally on CBS. Penn State was in control for much of the game, but the Boilers pulled out the 76-73 victory in the end.
