Penn State will attempt to continue their late-season surge as they head into the Big Ten Tournament as the three-seed Wednesday in Columbus. They will play the host Buckeyes, who grabbed the #6-seed, in the first round.
The Nittany Lions (29-25, 15-9) won their final six Big Ten series and 16 out of their last 21 overall. That includes taking two-of-three from Ohio State in late April. If the Lions take down the Buckeyes in their first game, they would then face Indiana on Thursday. Indiana (30-26, 16-8) also heated up at the end of the season, winning their last six and garnering the #2-seed in the tournament. The Hoosiers went 2-1 against the Nittany Lions at Medlar in late March, picking up 14-2 and 2-1 wins sandwiched around a 4-3 extra-inning loss.
The seedings break down as follows:
- Purdue (41-12, 17-7)
- Indiana (30-26, 16-8)
- Penn State (29-25, 15-9)
- Nebraska (34-21, 14-10)
- Michigan State (35-19, 13-11)
- Ohio State (31-25, 11-13)
