Inside the 12-minute media timeout right now and Penn State's Talor Battle has all eight of the Nittany Lions' points.

That prompts us for a little Did You Know...

Did you know Battle is just one of three players in NCAA Division I history to have logged at least 2,000 points, 600 rebounds and 500 assists in their career? 

Battle entered Big Ten Tournament play with 2,119 points, 501 rebounds and 506 assists for his career, joining Duke's Danny Ferry and Maryland's Grevis Vasquez in the elite company.
