Now over to the college side of things where Penn State was thoroughly dominated by 22nd ranked Illinois last night. The Fighting Illini dominated in every aspect of the game while dropping the Nittany Lions to 0-5 in the Big Ten.
They join Nebraska as the only 2 in the league without a conference win in 2021. Myron Jones led the Blue and White with 20 points on the night from Champaign. Now Penn State will have to turn its attention to Rutgers which is coming to town on Thursday and interim head coach Jim Ferry says the lack of court time has been showing up in league play.
“Again guys I keep saying it, but I don’t want to use it as a excuse, but we haven’t played a lot. We’re still trying to figure out who we are as a team. We can’t do that in practice all the time so we’re still in that mold. We are getting better. I know it didn’t look like that tonight, but we are getting better and we will continue to get better.”
Next game for the Nittany Lions will be at the Bryce Jordan Center against Rutgers on Thursday.
