Iowa 74, Penn State 72
Junior Roy Devyn Marble's 22 point performance helped the University of Iowa men's basketball hold off a feisty Penn State charge, as the Hawkeyes downed the Nittany Lions, 74-72, on Thursday night in the Bryce Jordan Center. It was Iowa's first win in Happy Valley since 2006. "We knew this wasn't going to be easy," said Marble. "They were sticking with us, and we just had to keep fighting. I told the guys we had to grind this out. We didn't want to go home with that bad taste like we did the last 3-4 games on the road. We just dug in." RECAP
