PENN ST: While the Nittany Lions had a very difficult 2012-13 campaign, they continued to keep playing hard and were rewarded with an upset over Michigan. However, star PG Tim Frazier (16.3 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 3.8 APG) was granted another year of eligibility after suffering a season-ending Achilles injury in the fourth game of the season. Frazier will team up with SG D.J. Newbill (16.3 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.0 APG) to form a backcourt as good as there is in the conference, including Michigan State. Newbill is a very interesting prospect, with great size for a guard at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds. Neither of these two shoot from deep very well, but are both terrific at getting to the line, averaging 16.1 combined free-throw attempts per game last season. PSU also returns junior PF Ross Travis (7.0 PPG), whose 7.4 RPG make him the conference's second-leading returning rebounder. If the backcourt is able to stay healthy and knock down more outside shots, Penn State should be the most improved team in the Big Ten.
OHIO ST: The Buckeyes were just four points away from the Final Four last season, but were upset by Wichita State in Elite Eight. While Deshaun Thomas is gone to the NBA, there is still a lot of talent in Columbus. PG Aaron Craft (10.0 PPG, 4.6 APG, 3.6 RPG) is one of the top point guards in all of the country. While he still may have his limitations shooting the ball (42% FG, 30% threes), he's widely regarded as the nation's best on-ball defender. Craft also does a terrific job of setting up teammates for easy baskets, and he once again has some very talented scorers to share the ball with. One of those, SF Sam Thompson (7.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 40% 3-pt FG) figures to be one of the most improved players in all of the country. Thompson is one of the top athletes in the country, while also developing as a much better shooter throughout the season. With Thomas no longer the go-to guy, look for Thompson's scoring average to double this season. Center Amir Williams (3.5 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 1.4 BPG) must develop and become more of a defensive presence. If the Buckeyes are able to get solid play from their frontcourt, then there's the potential to advance even farther this season.

*Penn St.-Ohio St. Preview* ===========================

Penn State (10-10) at Ohio State (16-4), 7:00 p.m. EDT

A victory before a five-day break has Ohio State feeling better about itself.

The No. 24 Buckeyes have to like their chances of winning again given who their next opponent is.

Ohio State has captured 18 straight meetings with Penn State, which enters Wednesday night's matchup having dropped 20 of its last 21 Big Ten road games.

The Buckeyes (16-4, 3-4) had the weekend off after Thursday's 62-55 win over Illinois ended a four-game slide and a stretch of six games in 20 days. Now they play five games in the next 14 days.

"I would say the time off gave us an opportunity to recover with the little nags and injuries that we've had within the past couple games," forward Marc Loving said. "But I feel like we're ready to play and just keeping this Big Ten season rolling."

Ohio State will try to continue its astounding streak over Penn State (10-10, 1-6), which has dropped nine straight visits to Columbus. Seventeen games in this run have come since coach Thad Matta took over the Buckeyes in 2004-05.

Matta still insists this matchup with the conference's worst team won't be easy.

"You look at Penn State, they've been in every single game that they've played this season and had some of the craziest losses I've seen just in terms of how the ball didn't bounce their way," Matta said.

Ohio State senior point guard Aaron Craft has 24 assists to seven turnovers in five games in this series, with the Buckeyes winning by an average of 17.5 points in the last four. Sam Thompson scored 16 points in last season's lone matchup, a 65-51 road win Jan. 26.

The Nittany Lions figure to be more formidable this season with the return of Tim Frazier, who missed nearly all of last season with a ruptured left Achilles. Frazier is averaging 16.5 points.

The senior guard is second on the team in scoring to D.J. Newbill, who is averaging 17.2 points and scored 15 in last season's meeting.

"Obviously Frazier and Newbill have shown not only this year but throughout their careers, that they can go into an arena and get 30 on you," Matta said.

Those guards combined for 27 points Thursday as Penn State ended a six-game slide with a 58-54 win over Nebraska.

"We're competing, I'm seeing little positives in every game even though we've been close a lot," coach Patrick Chambers said. "I feel like we finally got over the hump even though we made some mistakes down the stretch against Nebraska. We willed ourselves to a 'W'."

Chambers lauded the play of sophomore forwards Donovon Jack and Brandon Taylor, who totaled 18 points, and said that he expects the Nittany Lions to show improvement down the stretch.

The Buckeyes, who are 13-1 at home, have the same record that they did at this point last season, when they fell one game short of the Final Four.

"I think for these guys, like I said, there's so much uncertainty ahead so it's kind of exciting to see how we will play ourselves through the next month, if you will," Matta said.
