Reaves grabbed a Wolverine turnover and passed to Carr who set Stevens up for a dunk to give Penn State its first lead of the second half 41-38. Reaves sliced through the lane to pull PSU within two 38-36 and then a traveling call on MI put the ball back in the hands of Carr.
Despite there being no Big Ten title implications, there certainly is going to be a lot on the line for No. 17 MI and host Penn State when they meet Wednesday.
After a slow start, Penn State has morphed into one of the Big Ten's better teams in the second half of the season. On Sunday they connected on 75% against Ohio State.
The Penn State Nittany Lions (19-10) are coming from a 76-73 loss to the Purdue Boilermakers. Lehotak started her career as a head coach at Jacksonville, where she coached for five seasons (2007-11), notching a 137-152 overall record, including a 44-16 mark in the 2011 campaign and an 18-2 conference record. The overtime tie in the series finale extended Minnesota's unbeaten streak on Senior Day (regular-season home finale) to 10 games (8-0-2).
Sophomores Tony Carr and Lamar Stevens combined for 40 points, with 27 of their total coming in the second half, but No. 17 MI held off Penn State's second-half surge for a 73-62 win Wednesday at the Bryce Jordan Center. On the season, Robson owns a 1.53 GAA (second in the nation among goalies with at least 10 games) and a.945 save percentage (third in the country among goalies with at least 10 games). I thought they played hard. Last season, more than 68,000 showed up to watch the game and take in the festivities.
The Wolverines entered the game having made 264 3-pointers, good for second in the conference.

NEMANJA MATIC showed off his family's commitment to Manchester United with a huge Old Trafford birthday cake for his son. All eight players ruled out with injuries and Paul Pogba also missed the contest from falling ill overnight.
MI started strong with a 25-12 run midway through the first half through Robinsons deadly shooting beyond the arc.
More details about the game and events leading up to it will be announced at a later date.
Prior to tonight's game the Wolverines could have been anywhere from the four to the six seed.
The five seed will begin conference tournament play next Thursday, March 1 against the victor of the game between the 12 seed and 13.
Three of the last four Penn State spring games have seen an attendance of at least 70,000 people, with the exception coming previous year. The senior defenseman snapped a 46-game goal drought that stretched back to March 4, 2016 when he scored a pair of goals at Michigan State. With three more points, Bristedt would become the 85th member of Minnesota's 100-Point club following Michael Szmatula and Tyler Sheehy, who reached the milestone earlier this year.
Michigan's coach has found his man this year. They'll have a chance for a fourth Quadrant 1 win Saturday.
