LoB Exec Predictions: B1G Tournament Style

Greg Zelinske, President

Frankly, I think last time the Nittany Lions and Huskers matched up, it was a bit of a fluke. Nebraska shot better than they had (and have continued to) shoot all year long. I foresee a #B1G game from B1G All-Freshmen Team Member Tony Carr and a big game from a name that hasn’t seemed too familiar as of late: Payton Bank$. Let’s do this. #WhyNotBus

Penn State 74, Nebrasketball 65


Nick Malizia, Vice-President & Social Media Manager

I packed for five games.

Andrew Flatley, Treasurer

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – The B1G Tourney! I feel like Penn State will be able to make a run this year similar to 2015, and it all starts with Nebraska! Although they shot lights out against the Nits in the last meeting, I feel like it will be impossible to happen again. Tony Carr is going to have the best game of his career thus far after the frustration against Iowa, and Penn State’s going to take the W and move on to MSU.

Mercedes Fraistat, Secretary

Yo. It’s me, again. I said I wasn’t going to write another prediction but here I am. The boys have played Nebraska once this year and it didn’t end well. The team wants to make a run in this tourney and prove themselves. Nick packed for 5 games so I mean that can only be an indicator of what’s to come. Thank you Brian Mastro for my score prediction- you rock! Watch the Nittany Lions take on the Nebraska…. something’s tomorrow at 4:30pm! #BLUETogether

Mike Kwasnik, Webmaster

Nebraska has to travel far, we don’t, there is an inherent advantage there. Lions have to make their shots. I think they will.

Liz Cooney, Executive Officer

Penn State has a chance to make it to at least the quarterfinals of the B1G Tournament. But it starts with a win against Nebraska. The games against them earlier this season was not indicative of how good this team really is. They can truly rise up to their competition and not only play competitively BUT steal a game. The leaders of this team will need to step up and show just how good they truly are. It’s a whole new ballgame in March.

Penn State 69, Nebraska 62

Joe Nadonley, Executive Officer

Penn State has been dealt a bad card this season, with countless games being lost in the final few seconds. That changes today, and Penn State will pull out a convincing win against the Huskers

Penn State 75, Nebraska 68


Patrick Burns, Executive Officer

Nebraska had their best shooting performance of the year against Penn State last month in Lincoln, but comes into the Big Ten Tournament with four straight double digit losses. The Cornhuskers can always rely on 15 points a night and solid leadership from Tai Webster, but besides that, Nebrasketball is quite inconsistent. The Nittany Lions will move on to face Michigan State Thursday as long as Mike Watkins and Lamar Stevens stay out of foul trouble.

Alex Trias, Executive Officer

Penn State is building momentum with wins against Maryland and Illinois and I think it will continue Tuesday against a Nebraska team that is currently on a 3 game losing streak.
