Penn State has Ohio State’s number.

For the third time this season, the Nittany Lions knocked off the No. 13 Buckeyes, 69-68, this time winning in thrilling fashion: a dunk on their final possession:

Tony Carr finished with 25 points, six boards and five assists in the win, but it was Josh Reaves who back-cut C.J. Jackson for the game-winning bucket.

The win moves Penn State back into the bubble picture, as they now have three Quadrant 1 wins and could end up getting a shot at Purdue on Saturday night.

The Buckeyes should be fine heading into the dance, they just ran into a team that is a dreadful matchup for them. Josh Reaves has the size and athleticism to make life difficult for Keita Bates-Diop while Tony Carr’s size at the lead guard spot is a nightmare for Ohio State’s little guards.
