The Big Ten got 5 teams into the NCAA tournament including: Ohio State (seeded 4th), Penn State (seeded 7th), Northwestern (seeded 9th), Michigan State (seeded 14th, even after we trounced them 3-0 in the Big Ten Tournament semi-finals) and Indiana (un-seeded).
Penn State suffered a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game, but still earned a first round bye. They will play their first game on Sunday, November 22 at 1:00 pm and it will be at home, where Penn State has not lost this year; however, in what will almost surely evoke memories of Cresap's War, they will take on the winner of the Loyola, Md. vs. University of Maryland game. The University of Maryland is the defending NCAA champion.
Anyways, admission to the game is free to all PSU students and, although it likely won't be the highlight of your weekend, it should still be fun to watch this game. Penn State boasts the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and the Big Ten Tournament Offensive MVP, in Jason Yeisley and Corey Hertzog, respectively.
