Ohio State comes into this one with a 22-5 record overall.
"It would've been brutal to walk out of there with a loss", Chambers said this week. We were a little bit excited about basketball.
His other stops as a coach include Penn State, the Chicago Bears and the Miami Hurricanes.
The Nittany Lions had a 24-point halftime advantage and grew it to 30, 51-21, before Ohio State made a 16-4 run to cut the lead to 55-37. The Nittany Lions could pick up a much-needed third resume win on Sunday when they go on the road to face No. 6 Purdue.
On the subsequent Spartans' power-play, Lewandowski converted a centering feed from Patrick Khodorenko for the second time of the evening to extend Michigan State's lead to two goals. I'm out there throwing ally-oops and stuff.
Penn State's Lamar Stevens (11) drives to the hoop as Ohio State's Kaleb Wesson (34) defends during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in State College, Pa., Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018.
With a shiny new Top 10 ranking, No. 8 Ohio State (22-5, 13-1 Big Ten) looks to hold onto the top spot in the Big Ten when they head to Bryce Jordan Center to take on Penn State (18-9, 8-6 Big Ten).
Latest line: Penn State (-1). The Ohio State forward was held to just 10 points - well below his season average of almost 20 points a game. Just kidding. I'm not getting that specific.
Penn State is sitting at 18-9 this season so far.
"I didn't like those four games", Chambers told The Collegian, the school's student newspaper. Their season changed when Josh Reaves was declared eligible to play after missing four games (academics) in the middle of conference play. Coming into Thursday night's game, he was averaging 19.9 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. And they're favored. How do their players respond to that kind of moment?
One would have to think that Penn State can control its own destiny to make the tournament this year. "What more do you want to ask for?" "I think we all understand how important he is to us".
Garner said the BJC was the loudest he's ever heard it for the Rutgers game on January 27, one where 13,667 people were in the crowd. The Buckeyes weren't happy with their defense in the start to that game, helping the ridiculous 3-point percentage.
The Buckeyes entered a half game up on No. 2 Michigan State in the Big Ten standings and a 1 ½ ahead of No. 6 Purdue with the head-to-head tiebreaker over both. And this is one of the best teams Penn State has put on the court in recent memory.
"Nobody really cares about the guy that did a whole bunch of stuff but lost", Garner said.
