Chase Audige scored 21 points and had four steals, which helped Northwestern beat Illinois 73-60. Boo Buie scored 15 points, while Ty Berry scored 13. Audige was only 2 of 13 from the field, but 11 of his 12 free throws were good. The Wildcats shot 32% overall and 7 of 18 from 3-point range. With 11 minutes left in the second half, they had a 47-43 lead because Audige, Brooks Barnhizer, and Berry all made 3s in a row, giving them a lead. But in the last 5:53, they didn’t make another field goal. Instead, they won the game by going to the free throw line 13 times.

Hunter Dickinson scored 17 points, Jett Howard scored 14 points, and the Wolverines beat Penn State 79-69 on Saturday night. The Nittany Lions lost their five-game winning streak. Tarris Reed Jr. made 1 of 2 free throws, and Michigan extended its 42-34 halftime lead to 61-47 with 11 minutes left. Penn State closed to 72-69 on Camren Wynter’s jump shot with 2:17 remaining before the Wolverines held them off. Andrew Funk missed a 3-pointer, and Jalen Pickett scored 26 points for Penn State.

Michigan State is riding a five-game win streak going into Saturday’s game against rival Michigan at the Breslin Center. The Wolverines will have one less day to prepare for the game after hosting Penn State on Wednesday night. Coach Tom Izzo didn’t want to talk about Michigan shortly after beating Nebraska 74-56 on Tuesday night.

Both the players and coaches of both sides hope the first of two games between the basketball teams will not be marred by altercations. Fans are also hoping for a civil match.

Basketball player Patrick McCaffery leaves the team to deal with a mental health problem. Fran McCaffery says he has been dealing with anxiety, which “inhibits his preparation and performance.” He says he’s unfair to his teammates and himself if he does not feel like he should. The leave is unrelated to his cancer battle nine years ago, according to a statement released by the family.

The NCAA Division I Transformation Committee’s final report suggests that the way Division I sports are run should be changed. The committee’s goal is to make collegiate sports fairer. This means 25% of teams in the most funded sports should be eligible to compete in most championship tournaments. That could mean a March Madness tournament with 90 teams instead of the current 68. Next week, the Division I Board of Directors will review the report.

Eddie Osei-Nketia is giving a chance to a college football. He also holds his country’s 100-meter record and has much rugby experience. Now he’s signed to play for Hawaii. He also existed among a group of international recruits who would suit up new campuses across the United States.

Two players from Finland and France have signed letters of intent with Alabama and Michigan. But the international base has broadened, too. There’s New Zealand’s Osei-Nketia, Senegal’s Mamadou Cissokho, and others.

Michigan State beat Nebraska 74-56, with 16 of Tyson Walker’s 21 points coming in the first half. Walker scored Michigan State’s first 13 points and had a 7-0 run in the opening 11 minutes as the Spartans led 26-13. The Spartans also ended the half on a 13-0 run, giving them their biggest lead at halftime against a Big Ten team since the 2016–17 season.

Nebraska scored 18 points in the second half after scoring only 17 in the first. Nebraska got as close as 58-46 with 8:44 left. But Michigan State scored 10 straight points and then pushed its lead above 20 again with another 3-pointer by Walker.

Penn State defeated Utah 35–21. The younger players on the Nittany Lions’ roster performed well, raising hopes for next season. Running backs Nicholas Singleton and Kaytron Allen had great first years as freshmen.

On 18 carries, they combined for 157 yards and three touchdowns, and KeAndre caught a touchdown pass that went for 88 yards. Penn State’s ceiling next season could depend on how well freshman QB Drew Allar does in place of 6-year senior Sean Clifford.
