(Newser) – Penn State was hitting 59% of its free throws, had lost six straight and hadn't beaten a ranked team in two years. So of course the Nittany Lions went out yesterday and made 16-of-20 free throws to shock No. 8 Michigan State 85-76 in a Big Ten upset, reports the Associated Press. Stanley Pringle led the Lions with 19 points. In other Top 25 action:

  • Arkansas shot 58% in building a 25-point, first-half lead and cruised to an 80-61 win over No. 20 Florida in a SEC game.
  • Dominique Archie hit a 3-pointer with 5.9 seconds left to lift South Carolina past No. 24 Mississippi in an SEC upset. Archie led the Gamecocks with 20 points.
