Penn State unveils new gray alternate uniform

The Penn State men’s basketball team broke out a new alternate uniform Thursday night against Illinois. Based on the result, a 54-52 victory over surging Illinois, the Nittany Lions do well in gray. As for the look, gray is a c0lor a ton of teams are incorporating in their rotation — Ohio State and Purdue are a couple examples in the Big Ten. While it’s not a school color for Penn State, we’ve seen gray look a lot worse. View a photo gallery of the uniforms, courtesy of GoPSUSports.com.

Did You See This? Wisconsin's Evans

Wisconsin's Ryan Evans

Wisconsin - Ryan Evans Slam Dunk

With Wednesday night’s game against Northwestern well in hand late in the second half, Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans provided quite the highlight with a powerful alley-oop. On a night when the Badgers did a majority of their damage from downtown (12 of 23; 52 percent), it was Evans and his zero 3-pointers who carried the load. The junior scored a team-high 17 points and grabbed a game-high eight rebounds in the easy 77-57 victory at the Kohl Center. And then there was that late alley-oop. Also, let’s not forget Jordan Taylor’s perfect pass to make it all possible. Watch it now.

Jared Sullinger: One-on-One

Each week, I visit with our friend CBSSports.com bracketologist Jerry Palm about how the Big Ten looks in his NCAA projections. This week, Palm has nine Big Ten teams in the Big Dance. That’s three-quarters of the conference, but no Big Ten teams are projected as No. 1 seeds. There’s lots of basketball to be played, of course, and the Big Ten is a strong league that figures to be well-represented. Click down into this post to listen to my conversation with Palm. And remember: You can go to CBSSports.com to check out Jerry’s updated bracket projections each week.
