In one of the worst bad beats of the year, Penn State covered a 5-point spread against Duquesne in the unlikeliest of ways. With 5.2 seconds left in a tie game, Duquesne was called for a foul. Duquesne coach Keith Dambrot argued with the referees, picking up two technical fouls that set up six straight free throws for Penn State. Penn State made all six free throws, giving Penn State a 73-67 win, covering the 5-point spread, and putting the game over the total of 138. Based on Rasir Bolton and Lamar Stevens' free throw percentages entering the game, there was a 35 percent chance Penn State would make all six free throws. Penn State was 11-20 from the line before making the six free throws. (Courtesy of ESPN Stats & Info's MacKenzie Kraemer)
