Penn State entered last night's game against No. 4 Michigan with an 0-14 record in Big Ten play. They were 13-point underdogs at home. They lost their leading scorer to a season-ending knee injury weeks ago.

Which made the Nittany Lions' 84-78 win over the Wolverines one of the most shocking upsets of a college basketball season with no shortage of them. It was Penn State's first win over a top-five team in more than a decade -- and the highest-ranked opponent that the Nittany Lions have beaten since moving to the Jordan Center in 1996.
