Just the third player in NCAA Division I history to post at least 2,00 points, 600 rebounds and 500 assists and is the first Big Ten Player ever to reach 2,000 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists, Battle stands 16th all-time in Big Ten career scoring with 2,119 points and is 20 shy of eclipsing the 56-year-old all-time scoring mark of 2,138 set by Jesse Arnelle in 1955. Battle is the first Lion ever to post three seasons of 500 points or more and his 593 points on the year rank as sixth-best season scoring total in Penn State history.
