After playing at Purdue on Wed, the Nittany Lions play at No. 17 Wisconsin on Tuesday. It’s certainly possible the young team could be 11-10 after facing the Boilermakers and Badgers.But Purdue coach Matt Painter said Friday afternoon that it will not be an easy victory. Penn State beat Minnesota, which defeated Purdue in West Lafayette.
About this game: After blowing out Illinois, Purdue will again be a heavy favorite against a young Nittany Lion team that might still be smarting after falling on a buzzer-beater at home against an injury-ravaged Indiana team earlier in the week.The Nittany Lions are 3-3 in the Big Ten, with wins over Minnesota and Michigan, and narrow losses at Michigan and at home to IU, illustrating what the Lions might be capable of. Three of Penn State’s top five scorers are either freshmen (Lamar Stevens and Tony Carr) or red shirt freshmen (big an Mike Watkins).For the entire season, Penn State is shooting a Big Ten-worst 41.4 percent from the floor. In Big Ten play, it’s just 40.1 percent, better than only Rutgers The Nittany Lions have also struggled on the boards, being outre bounded on average for the season, one of just two teams in the Big Ten that’s true of, the other being Michigan.
They are patient on offense,” Painter said. “They push the basketball, but in the Big Ten, they have been more patient. They are young, so it’s about your personnel understanding what they do. We know what their older guys are capable of, just from playing against them in the past.
