‘LoseR’ say what? The best responses from Twitter as Rutgers basketball scores an epic win at Penn State
One good comeback, everybody knows the rules.
Rutgers superfan T.J. Hitchings started a ripple effect, trolling back a Penn State fan who was trolling Rutgers on Sunday night. The Penn State student held a sign mocking Rutgers during a 59-56 road win by the Scarlet Knights.
A member of the Penn State student section rolled out with a sign that read ‘LOSER’ with the last letter the block ‘R’ logo of Rutgers. A pretty good troll job from the Nittany Lions fan, the sign worked for much of the game, including a 19-point deficit for Rutgers early in the second half.
But then Rutgers went on a roll, a Derek Simpson layup and ensuing made free throw with 1:20 left in the game put the Scarlet Knights up 57-56.
With the win, Rutgers is now 18-11 (10-8 Big Ten) on the season. They swept Penn State home-and-away in the regular season.
