CHICAGO— It looks like Penn State’s 12-year NCAA Tournament drought is about to end.

Penn State beat Illinois 79-76 in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament at Chicago’s United Center.

The common perception is that one Big Ten tournament win would have punched Penn State’s (20-12) NCAA Tournament ticket, and coach Micah Shrewsbery’s team got that win.

NSN’s Dan Angell is in Chicago covering all the action. He discusses Penn State’s win over Illinois and the the team’s NCAA Tournament hopes, which look like they’ll come to fruition.
