It’s been a season full of close losses for Penn State. In D.J. Newbill’s final regular-season game Sunday at Minnesota, the Big Ten’s leading scorer wasn’t about to let the Nittany Lions suffer another heartbreak. With the score tied and the clock winding down, Newbill took his time before calmly getting into position to launch a deep 3-pointer, with a defender in his face. He nailed the difficult trey to give Penn State the 79-76 win. Newbill must have known it was going in, because he waited until the clock nearly expired. Or, maybe he didn’t want to give Minnesota

Hours after Indiana’s Hanner Mosquera-Perea slammed home what some called the Big Ten’s top dunk of the season, Illinois’ Rayvonte Rice threw another contender into the mix. Rice threw down a powerful, and I mean powerful, alley-oop in the first half of Illinois’ season finale at Purdue. “Oh my, goodness!” BTN color commentator Jon Crispin said. “I didn’t think there was any chance he was catching that one, but he went Grant Hill on us.” It was a thing of beauty. Check it out in the video above. Hello! Rayvonte Rice just put the "Flyin'" back in the Flyin' Illini
Indiana coach Tom Crean came under heavy scrutiny this week. On Saturday, he might have gotten the biggest endorsement of all.
It’s been a struggle for Michigan State at the free-throw line this year.
