Penn State Downs Nebraska in TIMpressive Fashion

It has been a trying three weeks for the Penn State basketball team, but they put an end to a five game losing streak Saturday in an impressive fashion. In front of a large crowd in attendance for the Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser, Penn State (11-15, 3-10) took an early lead and never looked back, knocking off Nebraska 67-51.

Penn State dominated Nebraska in every facet of the game, out rebounding the Cornhuskers 30-21, while holding them 3% below their season shooting percentage. Penn State shot 86% from the foul line, which has been an area for concern all season (Even Jon Graham made a free throw!).

Tim Frazier had one of the best games of his career, falling only one assist short of a triple-double (and likely would’ve had that assist of Nick Colella didn’t shoot 2-12). Frazier shot 7-9, hit all 8 foul shots, finishing with 23 points along with 10 rebounds.

Cammeron Woodyard and Jermaine Marshall had 14 and 12 points, respectively, including 4 3-pointers from Woodyard. Penn State shot 52% on the day, nearly 14% higher than their season average.

Much to the anguish of every student in attendance, Penn State failed to score the 3 more points required for the free Big Mac promotion for when the team scores 70 or more points. Matt Glover had a chance to get one last shot up at the end of the game, but Pat Chambers made him hold the ball, which resulted in a chorus of boos from the evidently hungry student section. Chambers explained after the game, “I wanted [the students] to get the free Big Macs. I just couldn’t do it to Doc [Sadler, Nebraska head coach].”

Penn State returns to action on Thursday, when they take on Iowa (13-12, 5-7) at the Bryce Jordan Center. The game will air on ESPNU.
