By beating Illinois 86-79 in double overtime at the Jordan Center Sunday, Penn State improved to 7-11 in the Big Ten.
That marks the most conference wins for the Nittany Lions under fifth-year head coach Pat Chambers. And PSU also earned an opening-day bye in this week's B1G Tournament, the first time in program history that has happened.
All in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
