MI secures victory against Penn State - Recap, Box score

Michigan State players pose with their Big Ten championship trophy following a game against Illinois Tuesday in East Lansing Mich. Michigan State won 81-61 to clinch at least a share of the title

Finally, Penn State plays a single game against Texas A&M, March 6 and will play in the Houston Tournament, March 9-11.

MI continues to get outstanding production from their bench.

Duncan Robinson scored 19 points off the bench and No. 17 MI recorded its fourth straight victory, downing Penn State 72-63 on Wednesday at Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pa. MI is now 12-5 in the conference and 23-7 overall. Penn State will play 10 home contests in the month of March before taking on six opponents in 14 games in the month of April.

After Penn State, Michigan closes the season at Maryland on Saturday, so there are two more good opportunities for the Wolverines to boost their RPI. If both don't occur, MI will be the 5 seed.

Michigan: The Wolverines are guaranteed to be seeded no worse than fifth in the Big Ten tournament with the win. Coming out the first media timeout, at the 15:15 mark, Robinson and Poole entered the game and changed the momentum. Freshman defenseman Alex Stevens, a former Wayzata High School standout, has played seven games with no points.

MI started strong with a 25-12 run midway through the first half through Robinsons deadly shooting beyond the arc. Poole, who started the second half in place of an ineffective Charles Matthews, stared into a TV camera after hammering a dunk over a Penn State defender in the first half. Along with two points from Eli Brooks, Michigan outscored Penn State's bench 34-6.

MI made 10-of-21 (48 percent) of its 3-pointers. Wagner was 4-for-5 from 3-point range while Poole added a pair.

Watkins is averaging 12.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game while shooting 69 percent from the field. It was her 20 rebounds and three blocks that helped give the Cornhuskers the edge over the Lady Lions on the night both on the scoreboard and the backboard, with a 60-31 Nebraska lead in rebounds.

Even with the loss Sunday night at Prudue, Penn State has still been on a hot streak, winning six of the last eight games. He tried to return briefly just before halftime, then watched the second half from the trainer's room.

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, from Allentown, Pennsylvania, had a rare display of emotion after an emphatic one-handed dunk on a fast break.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - John Beilein has always coveted the type of player with near-limitless energy reserve who can provide a scoring spark off the bench. However, a respectable number given that they turned the ball over six times within the first ten minutes.

"For some reason they hate me everywhere, but I just play", Wagner said.
