Penn State will need to make up a substantial gap in free-throw attempts if it wants to keep it close in Assembly Hall.

That game is going to get ugly.
I sure hope they can salvage some sort of season. Probably not starting tonight but...It would be nice to at least see our guys play hard, together and put the ball in the hoop. It sure would be a hell of an upset tonight!!! Oh yeah...I forgot to mention, start making the free ones!! WE ARE!!!!!!
KenPom gives Penn State a 30% chance of going winless the rest of the way. Best chance for a win comes at home vs. Purdue and on the road at Nebraska.
Penn State has slipped underneath 1 point per possession (widely accepted as average) on offense at .96 PPP, ranking them 226 overall. Consequently, Indiana ranks No. 4 in the country at offensive efficiency, scoring 1.21 points per possession.
If you thought Penn State fouled a lot, you'd be correct. They rank 335 in the country in defensive free throw %, which basically divides the amount of FTs attempted by the amount of FGs attempted (Formula: FT% = FTA/FGA). Opponents FT% against the Nittany Lions is 47.7% (the Division I average is 35%), which means for every 2.1 field goals Penn State's opposition attempts, they attempt 1 free throw.
