After being demolished at home by Michigan, the Wildcats’ chance to break their eight-game losing streak doesn’t get any easier. NU travels to State College to take on #13 Penn State, a high-flying squad that has taken down four ranked teams this season.
The Nittany Lions are riding a seven-game win streak and haven’t lost since exactly one month ago. They’ve been especially hard to beat at home, where they’re 12-1. However, PSU’s second-leading scorer, Myreon Jones, who averages 14.1 points per game, will once again be sidelined due to an illness, per Jon Rothstein.
