Watch James Blackmon Jr. hit game-winning three to beat Penn State

A crazy finish in State College tonight.

NCAA Basketball: Indiana at Penn State Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

With a minute to go tonight, Indiana led 75-68 and seemed in control.

With 4 seconds to go, Penn State had tied the game up at 75.

Tom Crean used his final timeout and got the Hoosiers in position for one more shot. James Blackmon Jr. got the ball, then this happened:

Blackmon hit the game-winning shot to give Indiana a 78-75 victory over the Nittany Lions. He’s been IU’s most consistent player this season, and there’s no one else I would have wanted to have the ball in his hands at the end of the game. Afterwards, he shushed the Penn State crowd, which was ironic because, well, that’s not exactly the loudest B1G arena.

Indiana moves to .500 in the conference, but the biggest concern right now is OG Anunoby, who went down hard with an knee injury right before halftime.
