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.

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.
