Pennsylvania vs Penn State

Penn St. 58, Penn 47

  •  

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Jermaine Marshall scored 18 points and two other Penn State players scored in double figures in a 58-47 win over Pennsylvania 58-47 on Saturday.

Marshall was fouled hard by Jamal Lewis on a breakaway with just under two minutes remaining. Lewis was ejected from the game after receiving a flagrant foul, and Marshall hit both free throws to give Penn State a 54-44 lead.

The Nittany Lions (4-3) didn't look back from there, outscoring the Quakers 9-3 during the stretch.

Penn (2-6) never led in the second half, but kept Penn State's lead in the single digits for much of the half. A pair Dau Jok free throws at the 7:26 mark cut the Nittany Lions' lead to four.

Tony Hicks led the Quakers with 10 points on 4 of 10 shooting.

Penn State's Jon Graham hit a pair of short-range shots from the paint on back-to-back possessions with a little more than five minutes remaining to put the Nittany Lions ahead by 10.

Penn quickly called a timeout, and coach Patrick Chambers hugged Graham on the sideline while the crowd cheered in the Bryce Jordan Center.

The Nittany Lions took a 31-22 lead into the half after shooting 8 of 17 from the floor. That hot shooting continued into the second half as Penn State shot 42.9 percent (18 of 42) in the game.

Chambers' squad took advantage of 26 fouls by the Quakers, shooting 17 of 23 from the line. The Nittany Lions were 7 of 9 from the charity stripe in the final three minutes.

Ross Travis scored three of his seven points over that span to keep the Quakers close in the final minutes. Travis, who entered Saturday ranked third in the Big Ten with 7.7 rebounds per game, added a team-high eight boards.

Penn's Fran Dougherty carried a team-high 18.6 points per game into Saturday's contest, but was limited to just seven points on 3 of 8 shooting.
