The No. 4 Michigan Wolverines suffered one of the biggest upsets of the 2012-13 College Basketball season last night, falling to the Penn State Nittany Lions 84-78 in State College, Pennsylvania. Penn State had not won a Big Ten contest this season and had lost 18 straight dating back to last season. To make matters worse for the Wolverines, they blew a 15 point lead in the loss. Jermaine Marshall scored 25 points for Penn State while Tim Hardaway Jr. led Michigan with 19. ESPN.com had a boat load of coverage on the upset:
Penn State coach Patrick Chambers kept saying all winter that his team was close to winning a Big Ten game even as the league losses piled up.
Momentum finally bounced the Nittany Lions' way on Wednesday night against one of their toughest foes of the season.
Jermaine Marshall scored 25 points and hit a key layup with 1:06 left to help Penn State roar back from a 15-point deficit and upset No. 4 Michigan 84-78 for its first Big Ten victory in more than a year.
No wonder fans rushed the court in delight after the final buzzer.
"I was looking around. I wanted to see our team," Chambers said about the frenzy inside the Jordan Center. "I wanted to embrace it and be in that moment because those moments don't come very often."
Penn State (9-18, 1-14) had lost 18 consecutive regular-season Big Ten games dating to last season. The team's previous conference win came on Feb. 16, 2012, a 69-64 victory over Iowa.
Next up, Penn State will play at Minnesota on Saturday while Michigan hosts Michigan State on Sunday.
