Penn State: 38 Illinois: 33

Juice Williams attempted a Hail Mary pass with no time remaining but it was batted down inside the Penn State 5...
I'm sure this game had to bolster Darryl Clark's Heisman hopes.

OH WAIT, this is basketball. Dear God @ that score. You mean to tell me PSU's bball team only scored as much as their football team did against Illinois back in September. You GOT to be kidding me.

I guess though if you love defence this was your game.

Interesting statistics from the game:
Both teams shot less than 19% from 3 point range.
The leading scorer in the game had 11 points.
Both teams combined for 16 assists (6 for PSU, 10 for Illinois)
The players on PSU without at least one steal were the minority.
Illinois didn't shoot a FT the whole game.
Illinois scored about twice as many points as their AP rank coming into this game (33, 16)
As expected, both teams shot horribly (less than 30% collectively)
The assist/TO difference for the each team-- PSU: -7 Illinois: -5

On Tuesday the 17th of February, 2008, the Phoenix Suns scored more against the LA Clippers in the first quarter (41 pts) than either the Illini or the Nittany Lions did in this whole game...dear god.
