Talor Battle and the Penn State men's basketball team are riding a two-game winning streak after road wins last week at Northwestern and Michigan. The Nittany Lions (10-16, 2-12) welcome Evan Turner, William Buford, Dallas Lauderdale and the No. 9 Ohio State Buckeyes (21-7, 11-4) to the Bryce Jordan Center tonight. The two teams met earlier in the season when the Buckeyes topped the Lions in Columbus, 75-62, in a game that was much closer than the final score indicates.
Battle and Turner were both named to the All-Big Ten first team last season and were teammates on Team USA for the World University Games in the summer of 2009. The two guards have developed a friendship off the court, which has made their duels on the court even more exhilarating.
