Penn State’s magical run has come to an end.

Tenth-seeded fought hard against second-seeded Texas but fell, 71-66, ending its season 23-14.

It was the first time Penn State made the NCAA Tournament since 2011, and its 76-59 win over Texas A&M Thursday was the first tournament game Penn State had won since 2001.

Penn State had Texas on the ropes late, leading by three with less than five minutes left. But ultimately, a Texas team many feel can win it all had too much firepower.

Here’s how the people of Twitter reacted to one of the best basketball seasons in Penn State history coming to an end.
