About this Article

No one could have predicted Penn State would shoot just 22.4 percent Saturday. But then no one could have predicted Michigan State would play defense like it did either. The fourth-seeded Spartans put the clamps on Penn State upsetting the top-seeded Nittany Lions 54-46 in the semifinals of the Big Ten women's basketball tournament at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. Michigan State (24-7) will take on third-seeded Purdue (23-8) at 3 p.m. Sunday.
