Gophers and Nittany Lions set for quick rematch in Big Ten tournament

From taunting players to scoring five in each game, the Nittany Lions seemed to have it out for Minnesota last weekend, which resulted in Penn State sweeping the team. The matchup will be renewed this weekend for the Big Ten tournament in State College, Pennsylvania — just six days removed from where the two teams left off Saturday.

Katelyn Kemmetmueller's ability to manage her life in college and softball came from a routine. The routine on the Kemmetmueller Dairy Farm to be exact, owned by the family of the Minnesota shortstop. The sophomore likes to go back to her home when she's away from her Division I sport.

Minnesota blown out by Penn State

Minnesota made the game one to forget almost from the drop of the puck. No. 18 Penn State (15-13-5, 8-10-5 Big Ten), with one victory in the previous nine games, had an offensive explosion against No. 8 Minnesota (19-14-2, 10-11-2 Big Ten) in a 5-1 Gophers' loss Friday. "I was shocked," head coach Don Lucia told the Gopher Radio Network. "It just wasn't our night tonight, I don't have an explanation other than we looked tired, we looked flat, we looked mentally out of it, [and] physically out of it."
