My Prediction: Penn State probably played themselves into the NCAA Tournament by beating Wisconsin and Michigan State the last 2 days. Ohio State already has a #1 seed locked up, but would love to cap off a great Big Ten season. The Buckeyes have struggled in their first two games while Penn State after getting by Wisconsin, cruised past the Spartans 61-48. If Talor Battle keeps hitting the shots he hit yesterday, the Lions should keep it close. Take the points.
Penn State +9.5
