What Had Happened Was: 2/2/17

Oh, you don’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

What did it take for Indiana to overcome Penn State on Wednesday night in triple overtime? Well, career-highs from sophomore big man Thomas Bryant (31 points), Josh Newkirk (27 points) and Robert Johnson (27 points).

Bryant also pulled down 11 boards in the Hoosiers’ 110-102 victory over Penn State, which stayed in the game thanks to a career-high effort from freshman guard Lamar Stevens, who poured in 16 points.

In what had been a competitive game until the final three minutes of the contest, Indiana took the lead when Newkirk hit a 3-pointer with 3:05 left. Penn State then turned the ball over, leading to an additional score, which put the game out of reach.
