Keys to the game

Indiana's season came to an end with a 61-55 loss against Penn State in the Big Ten tournament. IU finishes the season 12-20.

Here are some of the highlights from the game.

Key number: 15. The Nittany Lions got 15 offensive rebounds. It's part of the reason Penn State held a 17-2 edge in second-chance points (12-0 in the second half). Penn State held an overall rebounding edge 34-23. IU had just seven rebounds in the second half. Penn State had seven offensive rebounds.

Key stretch: Indiana trailed by three, 47-44, with 10 minutes remaining. Penn State's Talor Battle missed a shot on the other end, but Jeff Brooks grabbed the rebound to give the Nittany Lions another possession. Tim Frazier made a nice pass to Andrew Jones, who finished with a dunk. The play sparked a 6-0 run. The Nittany Lions kept momentum the rest of the game.

How about that: Penn State didn't commit a foul for the first 17:24 of the second half. When a foul was called on the Nittany Lions with 2:36 remaining, the pro-IU crowd erupted in cheers. Penn State had three fouls in the second half.

That's a fact: IU has lost its first game in the Big Ten tournament for five consecutive seasons.

Quotable, take 1:

"What has helped us all season has been when we win the rebounding war, we win games," said Penn State's Jeff Brooks. "We did a better job in the second half of hitting the boards."

Quotable, take 2:

"We competed every day in practice, we competed every day in games, we just weren't fortunate enough to get some of the wins we wanted."
