Penn State 84, #4/4 Michigan 78
The Penn State men's basketball team (9-18, 1-14 Big Ten) rallied in the second half for an 84-78 upset of No. 4 Michigan (23-5, 10-5 Big Ten) Wednesday night. It was the highest ranked opponent ever beaten by the Nittany Lions in the Bryce Jordan Center. It also marked Penn State's first Big Ten win of the season. Tonight's win against Michigan marks the third time in program history that the Nittany Lions defeated a team ranked No. 4 or higher. All three have occurred since 2000. The Nittany Lions were led by junior Jermaine Marshall (Etters, Pa.) who put up 25 points and was second on the team in rebounds with six. Sophomore D.J. Newbill (Philadelphia, Pa.) was second on the team with 17 points and led the Lions with five assists. Sophomore Ross Travis (Chaska, Minn.) tied his career high with 15 points and had a team-best 12 boards for the fourth double-double of his career. RECAP

Iowa 58, Purdue 48
or Roy Devyn Marble and sophomore Aaron White combined for 36 points in leading the University of Iowa men's basketball team to a 58-48 victory over Purdue in a defensive slugfest Wednesday night on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Iowa appeared to take control of the game midway through the second half, building a 47-33 lead, but Purdue fought to make things interesting. The Boilermakers used a 10-2 run behind a pair of D.J. Byrd 3-pointers to trim the margin to 49-43 with 2:17 remaining. With the Hawkeye offense struggling to find a shot, sophomore Josh Oglesby connected on a 3-pointer on a set play coming out of a timeout to give Iowa a 52-43 lead with 1:43 to play. The shot staved off any hope of a Purdue rally, and sent the Hawkeyes to their 18th victory. RECAP
