Ohio State Will Play Penn State In The Big Ten Tournament

Okay, here we go. Penn State beat Northwestern 65-57 to advance to the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament. Standing in its way is the No. 2 seed Ohio State Buckeyes.

And so far, OSU has not matched up well at all against Penn State. The Nittany Lions beat the Buckeyes 82-79 in Columbus on a Tony Carr bank-shot buzzer beater, and followed that up with a whitewashing of Ohio State 79-56 in University Park.

While it’s probably a nightmare scenario opponent for the No. 2 seed, it also is a chance to exorcise some demons of the past. Ohio State will need to play its best to advance to the semifinals.

 

 

Tip time is set for 6:30 PM Friday on BTN.
