VIDEO: Penn State upsets No. 13 Ohio State on late dunk from Josh Reaves
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.
