The Big Ten Men's Basketball tournament starts(ed) today -
Penn State (6) plays Indiana (11) tonight at 5pm (EST) on ESPN2 -
The games are being played in Indianapolis - so it's certainly not a "gimme" game.
And, of course, the winner faces Purdue tomorrow (and yes, the games are still in Indianapolis).
A few good wins in the tournament would go a long way to convincing the PtB that PSU deserves an at-large NCAA Tournament win (of course a tourney win would result in an auto-bid).
There have already been some "upsets" in other conferences - PSU will have to step up in order to secure a spot in the dance.
