Penn State checks in at No. 20 in the latest AP Poll, dropping four spots from their previous ranking.
Pat Chambers' squad went 1-1 this past week, surviving a near collapse against Rutgers in the BJC and falling at Iowa on Saturday afternoon. Maybe the only good thing from that Iowa loss was the return of Myreon Jones. Penn State's second-leading scorer had missed six games, and while he looked a bit rusty, he will provide a big boost going forward.
Penn State (21-8, 11-7) faces an uphill climb to a double-bye in the Big Ten tournament after losing three of its past four games. They can gain some ground with a win over Michigan State on Senior Night on Tuesday before closing out the regular season against conference cellar-dweller Northwestern on Saturday in Evanston.
