Penn State Wins: The Tale of Two Halves

Penn State (12-15, 4-10) came out hot Thursday night at the Bryce Jordan Center and held on down the stretch for a 69-64 victory over Iowa.

In the first half, the Nittany Lions shot 44% from the floor, including a 12-point performance from Cammeron Woodyard. Iowa was also held to 27% shooting, including only 1-7 from behind the arc. Penn State would go in at the half up 38-24, and looked well on their way to an easy victory.

Iowa wouldn’t go down easy though, as they shot 57% in the second half and put up 40 points. Penn State also regressed to 35% shooting and couldn’t seem to find the open looks that they were getting in the first half. Iowa would bring the game to within two points with two minutes left, but a clutch 3-point shot from Jermaine Marshall killed their momentum, as Penn State would hold on for a victory.

Penn State had 4 players break double digits in scoring including Tim Frazier (18), Woodyard (13), Jon Graham (10), and Jermaine Marshall (10). Graham had the best game of his young career, shooting a perfect 3-3, and to the astonishment of everyone, made all 4 of his foul shots. Graham also notched 6 rebounds in the effort.

Penn State takes on seventeenth ranked Wisconsin (19-7, 8-5) on Sunday in Madison. The squad returns home again next Saturday against Northwestern.
