Deserving Cornley

Penn State basketball fans know all about how tough Jamelle Cornley plays.

Now Florida Coach Billy Donovan does. Donovan lavished praise on Cornley, calling him a "phenomenal competitor" after last night's phenomenal performance.

It was a great team win and a fantastic individual effort by the Nittany Lions' senior leader.

It just may be one of the biggest wins in Penn State hoops history, prevailing at Florida, continuing great road play.

The Nittany Lions are heading to New York, and you have to think they could win the NIT this time.

I've seen Penn State play at the Garden several times, and I suggest any fan who can make the trip will enjoy it and talk about it for a long, long time.
