Penn St. 55, Michigan 51

Talor Battle scored 14 points and Andrew Jones added 10 Saturday

to lead Penn State to a 55-51 upset victory over Michigan.

The Nittany Lions (10-16, 2-12 Big Ten) broke open a close game

with a 7-0 run six minutes into the second half and held the lead

the remainder of the way. Penn State, which had lost 12 straight

Big Ten games before winning Wednesday at Northwestern, has won two

consecutive games for the first time since Dec. 19-21.

Wolverines (13-13, 6-8). The loss snapped a two-game winning streak

for Michigan, which has not won three straight games since the

start of the season.
