Postgame Reaction from Penn State Locker Room after NCAA Tournament Win

DES MOINES, IOWA– It was a night Penn State fans had been waiting for since 2011, and it delivered.

Penn State didn’t play a perfect NCAA Tournament game– that’s impossible– but it sure felt like it.

Coach Micah Shrewsberry’s squad rolled through Texas A&M, 76-59, for its first NCAA Tournament win since 2011.

Seventh-year senior Mikey Henn appropriately summed up the night.

“As good as they could have,” Henn, who transferred in from Denver before the season, said. “There were little pieces of the game that we could have even been better in, but the way that we played, the way that we game-planned, the way that we came out and executed was exactly what we were wanting to do.”

This will be Henn’s first and only season at Penn State. Myles Dread has been with the program since 2018-19. Penn State would have gone to the Tournament in 2020 if not for COVID-19.

Now, Dread has made it, and he loves it.

“It means the world, man,” Dread said. “Just going to play hard. Going to show everybody what we can do. We’re going to play together, be one of the toughest teams in the country and we’re going to go out and show it every night.”

Hear more from Henn, Dread, as well as freshmen Kebba Njie and Evan Mahaffey here.
