In the last game standing between them and their big matchup with No. 3 Purdue, Ohio State will take on IL this Sunday in Columbus. Penn State is now 12-0, 8-0 in the Big Ten.

PSU closed to gap to 15-9 at 165 when returning NCAA champ Vincenzo Joseph scored a 12-3 major decision win against Te'Shan Campbell.

With Jason Nolf (knee) out at least for the dual-meet season, Ohio State's Micah Jordan took down Penn State's Bo Pipher 11 times and his tech fall gave the Buckeyes that 10-point lead at the break.

In addition to concentrating on Mitchell, UW must also turn its attention to redshirt senior forward Stephanie Mavunga, another player who has surpassed the 1,000-point mark, and who is just 19 blocks short of 300 for her career.

Over on the Ohio State side, they're sitting at 19-5 on the year.

IL has had a rough go of it this season, featuring a 12-11 record while going just 2-8 in their Big Ten schedule.

"Bad stretches and mental lapses", IL guard Mark Alstork said was what led to Sunday's loss.

"It (stinks) it's a smaller venue and we won't have the fan support", said Martin.

The Irish are coming off consecutive 7-0 wins to open the season over Western Michigan and Eastern Illinois. Nickal's bonus point win gave Penn State its first lead of the dual, 16-15.

IL used its aggressive defense to create offense in the first half of the first half. Having felt the agony of a conference loss to a believed-to-be inferior opponent once already this season, the Buckeyes will not let it happen again. "They got one and we got none", UW coach Mark Johnson said.

"Shoot we were doing back flips". We didn't get out. That's this team's downfall. We move the ball, we share it, we're playing together. "We prepare for them like they're at the top of the Big Ten". Michael Finke knocked down two 3-pointers as IL jumped out to a 30-15 lead with just over 10 minutes left in the period.

"They have a better feel of what the game is going to be like on this small sheet", Johnson said heading into todays' rematch.

IL started the game off well on Sunday. We did get away from that. After an initial takedown by Tomasello, Kuhn went on the offensive scoring three takedowns, including a headlock off the edge of the mat and led 8-7 at the end of the first period. "That's why they capitalized". With more than a dozen friends and family on hand, the OH native knew this was his last chance to play in his home state and the senior came to play scoring a season high 19 points on 6-for-11 shooting but an 11-minute, 31 second first half scoring drought ultimately proved to be too much to overcome.

"We thought we were going to win the game", Alstork said.

An MSU penalty with 1:45 to go complicated the Spartans' comeback effort and then an empty-net goal with 41 seconds to go sealed the game for OSU.

Freshman guard Trent Frazier led the Illini with 17 points, making five 3-pointers. The Illini led by four with 6:07 to play.

"It was just fun to have everyone cheer", he said after the Nittany Lions' 19-18 win Saturday night.
