Penn State NIT Tournament outlook

Penn State came up just short of a miracle Big Ten Tournament run, falling to Purdue in the tournament semifinals. It was a loss that likely cost the Nittany Lions a chance at the NCAA Tournament. But Penn State’s early-season struggled probably played a factor, too, according to Landof10’s Tyler Donohue:

Plenty of people will point toward Penn State’s three-game losing streak in late February as the deciding factor. However, midseason inconsistency put the program in a hole. After starting 10-3, the Nittany Lions failed to win consecutive games between Dec. 19 and Jan. 27.
