Penn State Vs. Indiana: Will Nittany Lions' Road Woes Continue At Assembly Hall?

The Penn State Nittany Lions (10-10, 2-5 Big Ten) look to maintain the momentum of their upset win over Illinois when they travel to Assembly Hall Sunday afternoon to take on the Indiana Hoosiers (15-4, 3-4).

The Penn State Nittany Lions (10-10, 2-5 Big Ten) look to maintain the momentum of their upset win over Illinois when they travel to Assembly Hall Sunday afternoon to take on the Indiana Hoosiers (15-4, 3-4). Penn State had lost it's first three Big Ten road games before scoring a 54-52 win Thursday over the No. 22 Fighting Illini.

No. 11 Indiana has lost three straight games, and will now face the last team it beat. The Hoosiers have not won since a 88-82 victory over the Nittany Lions on January 8, a game in which Indiana made a season-high 16 three point baskets.

If Penn State is to score its second straight conference upset win, Tim Frazier and Cammeron Woodyard will have to play big. Frazier is second in the Big Ten in scoring (17.9 ppg) and first in assists (6.7 apg), and in fact is the only player in Division 1 averaging 17 or more points and 6.5 or more assists per game. Woodyard has been the Nittany Lions' leading scorer in the past two games.
