Micah Shrewsberry, Penn State HC, sounds off on B1G officiating: 'I'm done sending in clips'
Micah Shrewsberry was not happy with his team’s performance Tuesday night against Rutgers.
Put simply, it was probably Penn State’s worst offensive effort of the year. The Nittany Lions fell 65-45, leading Shrewsberry to say Rutgers played “grown man basketball” while Penn State played “soft.”

At the same time, Shrewsberry wasn’t very happy with officials, either. He sounded off on officiating, specifically focusing on the fact that star guard Jalen Pickett took just 2 free throws all evening.
More Shrewsberry on officiating: “I’m done sending in clips. I gotta coach my team. I just want Jalen Pickett to shoot more than two free throws per game. One of the best players in this league. Never gets fouled. Never gets fouled.”
