My free play for Wednesday is going to be on the Penn State Nittany Lions, who looked good against Ohio State in the Big Ten opener, but then fell off in the latter stages and dropped to 4-4.
Now the Nittany Lions can flex their muscles a bit against Wagner, which has made some others take notice, which will be good in keeping Penn State focused on the task at hand.
Wagner has not necessarily fared well playing up, as we saw in its only major conference test last season, when it lost by 33 to Seton Hall, and again against the Pirates this season in a 22-point loss.
The other knock against Wagner is it's played only four games after the team had to cancel its games in late November. This is a group that is surely not where it would like to be, and lacks the chemistry to challenge the Lions, since the starting five includes three new players with two freshmen this season.
Wagner has shot less than 30% from 3-point range, is straddled with an extremely high turnover rate, and now faes an angry Penn State team on its court.
Lay the chalk here.
