Penn State men’s basketball responded to a disappointing home loss to Michigan State in its conference opener this past Wednesday with an upset over 17th-ranked and 11.5-point favorite Illinois on the road.
Here’s what the people of Twitter had to say about it.
On Tuesday, Illinois beat Texas at Madison Square Garden.
Today, it lost to Penn State by 15 at home.
Nope. Just College Basketball.

For those of you not paying attention to Penn State basketball: you should start.
Nittany Lions just floored No. 17 Illinois (at ILL), 74-59.

The parity in College Basketball right now is awesome.
Illinois has beaten Texas and UCLA on neutral sites and is about to drop one at home to a Penn State team that's best player is a 6'4" power forward.
Lot of different ways to win at this level!
Impressive win for the PSU

The @B1GMBBall is deep!
Penn State showed resilience after the home loss to Michigan State.
Big shots by Andrew Funk.
Illinois must be better defensively if they are going to contend. Being 0-2 in BIG. Not good.

Based on a result I've seen today, I've been reminded today to never to underestimate Micah Shrewsberry and Penn State basketball.
