Penn State is probably going dancing.

10th-seeded Penn State came into its first-round Big Ten Tournament matchup with Illinois needing a win to virtually lock up an NCAA Tournament appearance.

It got a win 79-76 and beat Illinois for the third time in three tries this season.

Penn State (20-12) still has at least one more game to play before Selection Sunday, taking on No. 2 Northwestern at 6:30 CT in the quarterfinals.

But it feels like Penn State is playing with house money.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to what’s looking like the win that will seal Penn State’s first NCAA Tournament bid since 2011.
