Penn State Drops a “Must Win”

Penn State drops a “Must Win”, 60-58. Going into the Breslin Center in Michigan, The Penn State Nittany Lions (7-9) looked at a near must-win game against the Michigan State Spartans (10-7). Both squads put on a less than stellar performance. Big body, Aaron Henry (20 points) signaled the difference in this one.

Henry was a force the entire game and forced the Lions to rush their shots which resulted in a dismal 20 for 58 from the field. From long-range PSU was certainly not much improved and posted a head-scratching, 5 of 23. The bright spot for the visitors was John Harrar who posted a 17 point 14 rebound double-double.


The Spartans were only slightly better and were 23 for 55 from the field with 4 of 15 from long range. Joey Hauser added 11 while Malik Hall hit double digits with ten for MSU.

Myreon  Jones banged 15 in defeat for the Lions. Penn State has their backs to the wall and a win against Nebraska is tantamount to save any tournament hopes.
