Battle Leads Lions to Win

After a terrible night against Maryland, Penn State bounced back to defeat Duquesne 77-73 Saturday thanks to a great performance from Talor Battle.

Battle made five threes and scored 31 points to go along with eight rebounds and four assists to lead the Lions to a season high of 77 points. Jeff Brooks helped on the offensive end  by adding 17 points and seven rebounds to help offset losing forward David Jackson early in the game due to injury.

Penn State battled all night with the Dukes, who led 16-9 at one point and 33-30 over the Lions at half. Although Penn State shot a season high 54.9% from the field, they kept Duquesne in the game by only shooting 51.6% (16-31) from the free throw line.

Andrew Jones chipped in with eight points and nine rebounds and freshman Tre Bowman added a career high of six points for the Lions. Penn State improved to 6-2 on the year and are home again this Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. to challenge Mount St. Mary’s.
