Penn State shocks #4 Michigan

Published on February 28, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

It has been a tough season for the Penn State men’s basketball team, and that is a understatement. Coming into their game with Michigan the Nittany Lions had loss 14 in a row , with all those games coming in conference. Early in the season the Lions also lost their best player for the season with an injury.

It looked like PSU was well on the way to their 15 straight loss with Michigan winning by 10 under 10 minutes to play , but Jermaine Marshall had other ideas. Marshall finished with 25 points, but 19 of those came in the 2nd half. With PSU winning by 1, Marshall hit a driving layup to give PSU and 3 point lead and they never looked back.

“It was a chip play that we run. … Coach put the ball in my hand and he had trust in me,” Marshall said. “Fortunately that layup rode around the rim and went down.”

D. J. Newbill added 17 points, and Ross Travis chipped in with 15 points. The Lions also hit a season high 10 three pointers.

“I was looking around. I wanted to see our team,” Chambers said about the frenzy inside the Jordan Center. “I wanted to embrace it and be in that moment because those moments don’t come very often.”

“These guys have been totally engaged with what we were saying and what we were trying to accomplish,” Chambers said. “They didn’t let the outside distractions of ‘They’re no good; they can’t win in that league’ get to them. And they got better. I kept telling them the results might not be there, but we are better.”

The Nittany Lions should be a lot better, as they are returning most of their team plus there best player Tim Frazier is returning.
