Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano gets huge bump in pay

It would've been a insane thought that Penn State would even be sitting in this position just three weeks ago ahead of the Ohio State upset.

Penn State scored 26 consecutive points with:01 left in the 1st Half, making the game 45-21 in favor of Penn State. But the Nittany Lions are trying to make a late-season impression.

Penn State had more second-chance points with 15, compared to Ohio State's 6.

"I think in many ways we have more matchup issues with Penn State than anybody in the league", the Buckeyes coach said before his team made the trip east to play the only Big Ten opponent to beat Ohio State this year. The team was led by Kaleb Wesson, who after not scoring in a game for the first time this season against Purdue finished with a team-high 18 points and seven rebounds against the Hawkeyes.

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.

After taking sole possession of first place last weekend, Ohio State travels to Penn State to try to avenge its only loss of the Big Ten season.

So too would Garner, whose own Penn State legacy will be finalized one way or another in the coming month. There's some actual NBA-type skill and it all starts with sophomore guard Tony Carr, who's second in the Big Ten in scoring at 19.2 points per game.

Holtmann was right, obviously. But that was going to be true regardless of how the teams played on Thursday night. Defensively, Penn State yields 66.4 points per game against the opposing teams.

Mike Watkins added 11 points and 10 rebounds for his tenth double-double of the season. The Buckeyes also couldn't let Penn State set the agenda early on.

"It's kind of something I'm used to, teams throw one or two defenders at me during the game", Carr said.

Penn State pushed the pace with 10 points off of fast breaks versus an opposing 7 points off of fast breaks.

"I think it balances us more on the defensive end", guard C.J. Jackson told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Ohio State wouldn't have any problems in the Big Ten if it weren't for Penn State.

Ohio State struggled and so did their outstanding junior forward Keita Bates-Diop. Purdue lost to Wisconsin on Thursday night, so it remains a game back of the lead.
