What Penn State Basketball G Jalen Pickett Has in Common with LeBron James, Steph Curry
Jalen Pickett has been on fire these last few games as he almost single handily is trying to carry Penn State Basketball to its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2011.
On Saturday night against the Minnesota Golden Gophers, the Nittany Lions‘ senior point guard added another impressive performance with 32 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assist.
With that performance Pickett joins legends LeBron James and Steph Curry as one of 3 players in the last 25 years to have 70+ points, 15+ assists, 10+ rebounds, 65% FG%, and 90% FT% in a 2 game stretch.

Jalen Pickett is averaging 18.6 ppg, 7.4 rpg, and 7.0 Apg. He currently sits as the one of 2 players in the last 30 years to have that stat line.
Pickett has been the emergency button for when Penn State struggles offensively all season and will have to continue to play well down the stretch as Penn State continues to try and stay alive for the NCAA Tournament.
The next game for the Nittany Lions will be Thursday February 23rd at Ohio State.
