What to Know

Get ready for a Big Ten battle as the #20 Penn State Nittany Lions and the Northwestern Wildcats will face off at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at Welsh-Ryan Arena. Penn State has been getting the ball to fall more lately as they’ve increased their point totals each of their last four games.

The Nittany Lions came up short against the Michigan State Spartans on Tuesday, falling 79-71. Guard Myreon Jones (16 points) and forward Lamar Stevens (15 points) were the top scorers for Penn State.

Meanwhile, the game between Northwestern and the Wisconsin Badgers on Wednesday was not a total blowout, but with Northwestern falling 63-48 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. The top scorer for Northwestern was forward Pete Nance (14 points).
