Once, Twice, Three Times A Lady!

Penn State will face Illinois today in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament and attempt to make them their bitch for the third time this year (get it? three times a lady? lame?).

Tip off is at 2:30, which gives us all a convenient way to check out from work for the day during mid-afternoon. Hooray headphones!

Game one of this pillow fight ended 68-64 with Cornley leading the team in points, assists and rebounds. Both him and Claxton managed double-doubles...both will obviously be absent today.

Game two, plays in Happy Valley, was the same result but a totally different cast. The game ended 52-51 with Penn State shooting .400 from behind the three point line. It was Battle's turn to own that night, leading the team in the three major categories. He also hit both his free throws with 7 seconds left to tie and then capture the lead.

So today? I don't really have anything interesting to add. The Indiana win was big...very big considering the talent gap and age of our starters. So what about winning that always difficult third game in a row? Well if this was an NFL game, is sounds like that's a myth. The NFL and NCAA basketball are pretty much the same thing, so the odds are in our favor.

Check back at 2:30 and I'll attempt to post a radio link.

UPDATE: As promised, for you stuck at work, listen here.

LATER, MORE DISAPPOINTING UPDATE: Psych! Despite the fact that they advertise that they broadcast PSU basketball games, and further that their own schedule states that the game is on-air, it is, in fact, not.

This list at GoPSUSports gives over 50 affiliated radio stations, but not one of them is actually airing the game. The Man really fucked us on this one.

Do you know any radio stations with live streaming that will be carrying the game?

I usually listen to the Howard Stern afternoon replay but I'd definitely like to listen to the game today.

thats normally how i catch the game...there is always a long list at gopsusports, so it takes me 10 minutes of looking around but i can always find one.

I'll do that again around 2:15 and update this post with a link.

Thanks man! I appreciate it. I'll checkout in the meantime. That didn't initially cross my mind
