Blue-White Game Set to Kick at 3 pm on April 21

It got easier for the Wolverines just four minutes in when star Penn State forward Mike Watkins crumpled under Penn State's basket with an apparent right leg injury. The annual intrasquad game will cap off the Nittany Lions' spring practices, and will give fans a clue as to how the team has developed in the offseason.

Penn State (19-10, 9-7 Big Ten) enters the game with an RPI of 76, and beating a MI team that enters No. 28 in the RPI rankings would no doubt push the Nittany Lions deeper into the NCAA Tournament conversation.

Robinson and Poole came off the bench at the same time early in the first half and gave Michigan's offense the spark it needed.

The Penn State Nittany Lions (19-10) are coming from a 76-73 loss to the Purdue Boilermakers. The Wolverines saw their eight point halftime lead not only disappear early in the second half, they found themselves down as their struggled offensively while Penn State found their groove.

"I think we've got a couple of guys that are willing to take and make tough shots", John Beilein said.

Carr countered with a triple, but an Abdur-Rahkman finish and a dagger triple by Robinson at 1:26 made it a nine-point spread, and the Wolverines finished it from the line.

Afterward, the forward spent a few minutes on a courtside exercise bike before returning to the bench with 9:28 to play. The two teams split a pair of games at 3M Arena at Mariucci on October 13 (3-1 loss for the "U") and October 15 (6-3 win for the "U").

Penn State, a team that has played itself into at least being in the conversation for an NCAA Tournament berth because of a strong second half, has opportunity knocking with a chance to earn what would assuredly be a resume-boosting win. "We weren't surprised that they shot the ball well". This momentum carried over into the second half as the Roman Catholic tandem of Tony Carr and Lamar Stevens took over the game. They were on a 22-8 run at that point, and the crowd was back into the game. "He got open, luckily, and he made them both and all of a sudden it's a 1-point game and we're still playing".

Over the last few games, MI has continued to shooter better and better from the free throw line.

He'll have a short flight home from State College to start thinking about it, comforted by the fact that the Wolverines picked up their third Quadrant 2 win of the season, as judged by the NCAA Tournament selection committee.

Senior defenseman Jack Glover scored his first goal of the year (and first goal in almost two years) to notch the game-winner last Friday against Ohio State in his 100th career game. Watkins will be almost impossible for Penn State to replace if it has to move on without him.
