Tech losing at home to Penn State is somewhat like Georgia losing to WKU. Penn State hasn't been a great program, but they're a good one.
The difference for Penn State was their point guard play. Stanley Pringle shot the ball well, made good decisions, and set up players for high-percentage shots.
Tech player, Gani Lawal, is the real deal. He has really come into his own this year. Had 34 points on 15 of 19 shooting. Penn State is not that strong on the inside, but that's not the point. Lawal is good and he will compete in the ACC portion of the schedule this year.
