Penn State Upsets No. 4 Michigan in Men’s College Basketball

Feb. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Pennsylvania State University upset the fourth-ranked University of Michigan 84-78 for its first Big Ten conference victory in more than a year.

Jermaine Marshall scored 25 points, D.J. Newbill scored 17 points and Ross Travis had 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Nittany Lions (9-18 overall, 1-14 Big Ten) at Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pennsylvania, last night.

Tim Hardaway Jr. had 19 points for the Wolverines (23-5, 10-5 Big Ten), followed by Trey Burke with 18 points.

It was Penn State’s first conference win since it beat Iowa 69-64 on Feb. 16, 2012, and its first success against a top-five opponent since it beat No. 5 North Carolina 82-74 in the second round of the 2001 National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament.

Also in men’s college basketball last night, fifth-ranked Miami defeated Virginia Tech 76-58. The Hurricanes improved to 23-4 and 14-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
