YAY HOOPS: Penn State vs. Indiana (Big Ten Tournament Opening Round) Live Game Thread

For the third time in the last four years, Penn State and Indiana are hooking up in the Big Ten Tournament's opening round. The last couple of meetings featured a higher-seeded PSU team taking on a lesser Hoosiers squad. It was a sight that I could personally never get used to, as it seemed like the equivalent of PSU being an underdog against IU in football. Things have returned to normal though, as it is Indiana who has the higher seed, facing a PSU team with absolutely nothing to lose after finishing dead last in the B1G standings.

Tipoff is at 2:00 PM ET on BTN as well as these local radio affiliates. If you haven't read Eric's preview or our roving B1G Tournament reporter Matt Pencek's look back at the best and worst moments in conference tournament history, please do so before proceeding to the "Comments" section below.

And as always, same standard live game thread rules apply: No porn, no racism/sexism/homophobia/trolling, no politics or religion, and no links to illegal video streams.
