Penn State upsets No. 8 Buckeyes for a season sweep

Should Thad Matta Get Credit For Ohio State's Resurgence

Penn State (18-9, 8-6) downed Iowa by 24 points earlier this month and trounced IL last weekend on the road, 74-52.

MI assistants Tim Drevno, Pep Hamilton, Don Brown each made more than $1 million a year ago. They're fresh after beating Iowa 74-59 on Wednesday night for their 14th win in 15 home games.

Halftime-Penn St. 45-21. 3-Point Goals-Ohio St. 2-15 (Bates-Diop 1-2, Jackson 1-5, A.Wesson 0-1, Tate 0-2, Jallow 0-2, Williams 0-3), Penn St. 9-20 (Garner 4-7, Carr 4-8, Reaves 1-1, Stevens 0-2, Bostick 0-2). The four-time Big Ten Player of the Week is tied for the conference lead in scoring (19.6) and is third in rebounding (8.8). That would be the fewest since 2008.

Ohio State has been really good on the road this year.

Sucese provided the equalizer for Penn State 3:39 later only for the KHL line to propel the Spartans back into the lead within minutes. The Huskers beat MI by 20 points in Lincoln a month ago. Ohio State won the inaugural College Football Playoff national championship in 2014 and it has won two Big Ten titles plus a Sugar Bowl and a Fiesta Bowl, in addition to the Cotton Bowl title to cap 2017. He has a 73-8 record in six seasons as Buckeyes head coach.

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day also becomes a $1 million assistant for the Buckeyes. The nine conference wins are the most for Chambers at Penn State and come at the earliest date since the 1995-96 season when the squad had 11 wins in 15 league games. It was Penn State's fourth-straight win and the fifth victory in six meetings against top-25 opponents at the BJC. Thad Matta won 20 in 2005 and Gary Williams won 20 in 1987.

Fast forward to Thursday night where Penn State got off to a fantastic start and never looked back.

It's an exciting brand of basketball coupled with defense and rebounding that's brought Penn State to this point, one where Thursday's 8 p.m. tip in the Bryce Jordan Center against No. 8 Ohio State (22-5, 13-1) will play out in front of a White-Out crowd.

Heading into the first Ohio State game, the Nittany Lions were stuck in neutral at 3-5 in Big Ten play. Watkins leads in rebounds with 9.5 while Carr tops in assists with 4.9 per game. The game will also be televised on Big Ten Network.

"Ohio State on our home floor". Maryland (22-3, 11-1) goes into the last 10 days of the regular season with a 1 1/2-game lead over Ohio State (21-6, 10-3) and two-game lead over Nebraska (18-7, 9-3).
