On a day where Rutgers was celebrating a senior class that will go down in program history, emotions and energy were high for hours before tip-off.

Rutgers led by as many as many as 15 in the second half before the Nittany Lions were able to tie it up late. In the end, a Penn State three found nothing but air as the buzzer sounded after a 59-58 win for the Scarlet Knights.
