What Had Happened Was: 2/2/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
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.

You don't have to love Beyoncé's music to appreciate the joy she brings her fans. Especially Black women. This is hilarious and beautiful.
