Jermaine Marshall scored 25 points and Penn State upset No. 4 Michigan 84-78 on Wednesday night for its first Big Ten win of the season. The Nittany Lions (9-18, 1-14) had lost 18 straight regular-season conference games dating to last season, but they roared back from a 15-point deficit with 10:39 left behind the energetic play of Marshall.

It didn’t take long for Michigan’s Glenn Robinson III to make an impact in Wednesday’s loss at Penn State. Just more than one minute in, the freshman drove and exploded for a powerful one-handed flush over Ross Travis. As if the dunk wasn’t good enough on its own, Robinson III punctuated it with a little flare at the end – even if it was accidental. Watch the dunk now, and pay close attention to the end as the ball caroms off Robinson III’s head.
Indiana suffered another road loss to a previously scuffling squad, this time falling at Minnesota by four points. Much has been said about Cody Zeller’s lack of offensive production on this night (nine points, four turnovers, five fouls), but the Hoosiers scored quite well with their big man scuffling.
