Jalen Pickett is quite good at basketball, and he led Penn State to a much-needed 93-81 win over Illinois Tuesday night at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Pickett finished the night with 41 points and eight assists.

It was the first time a Penn State player scored more than 40 points since 1961.

That’s back when Joe Paterno was still an assistant football coach.

Here’s how the people of Twitter reacted to Pickett’s performance.
