Penn Stater Daily Dec 16 2013 Your Monday sports wrap The Nittany Lions Return to Rec game was a huge success in all but the final score an 81 79 overtime loss Saturday to Princeton The Tigers clawed back from a 20 point second half deficit to dampen Penn State s first game at Rec Hall since 1996 Still it was a great afternoon for the fans who packed into the old barn if you weren t there you can find a terrific bunch of photos from Mark Selders here The women s volleyball team enjoyed a more successful weekend on the road beating Michigan State and long time rival Stanford to guarantee a return to the NCAA Final Four Penn State will face Washington on Thursday in Seattle for a chance to play in the national title game I thought the contrast in photos Onward State ran in back to back stories on the hoops and volleyball games was worth noting Also in action this weekend The Lady Lions got back on track after a tough week with a 66 58 win over No 20 Texas A M and the No 2 wrestling team dominated No 6 Ohio State 31 6 Making their case At a pretrial hearing Tuesday in Harrisburg attorneys for Graham Spanier Tim Curley 76 78g and Gary Schultz 71 75g will argue that the cases

Sunday that according to pro and college sources Bill O Brien is ready to return to the NFL Is it true Probably only O Brien his family and his agent know for sure but you can expect to hear much more on this over the coming weeks as NFL teams wrap up the regular season and prepare for the annual turnover in head coaching jobs Stay tuned It s finals week The cold front that has smacked Happy Valley in recent days should make it easier for students to cuddle up with warm books and laptops for the next few days as they wrap up the fall semester with final exams Student media has all sorts of

the Nittany Lions would be on the verge of defeating No 15 Wisconsin I missed the entire second half so I had a lot of catching up to do when I got home Here s what I did watched this video from the locker room this video of Bill O Brien s news conference read this piece by Dave Jones of The Patriot News about freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg who completed 21 of 30 passes for 339 yards and four touchdowns and is racking up all kinds of recognition and checked out John McGonigal s game story in the Collegian Looking to the future Can t wait for next football season Get ready now by
