2011 Big Ten Tournament: Indiana Ends Season with 61-55 loss to Penn State

The Big Ten season began with a 69-60 loss to Penn State at Assembly Hall. it ended with an 61-55 loss to the Nittany Lions just an hour up the road in Indianapolis. the Hoosiers were 9-4 the first time around, but finished the year just 12-20 and with no wins away from Assembly Hall.

The Hoosiers did a good job in limiting the Big Ten’s second leading scorer in Talor Battle. he was held to just 13 points, but Jeff Brooks finished with 15 points for the Nittany Lions.

Penn State picked up just its seventh ever win in the Big Ten Tournament, but they have only made it past the quarterfinal round twice in 2000 and 2001. They likely need at least one more victory to have any chance at making the NCAA Tournament, while an appearance in the final would help even more. The Nittany Lions will face Wisconsin in Friday’s quarterfinals, and Penn State split the season series with the Badgers. Each team won at home.

Christian Watford was the only Indiana player in double figures with 15 points. Hulls finished with nine points, but was 0 for 4 on 3-pointers.
