Penn State Can’t Keep Up With Purdue

Penn State couldn’t repeat their 65-45 victory over Purdue from January 5, as they fell 80-56 last night to the Boilermakers on Senior Day in West Lafayette. The Nittany Lions trailed only 37-32 at the half,  but Purdue’s all-conference star, 5th-year senior Robbie Hummel, finished with 26 points as Purdue shot 57% to pull away from Penn State early in the second half.

Tim Frazier accounted for more than half of Penn State’s points, leading the team with 24 points, to go along with 6 assists. Jermaine Marshall was the only other Nittany Lion to reach double digits, adding 10 points of his own.

Nick Colella had another rough night, with 0 points to show for 17 minutes of action. Colella is shooting 6-32 (18.75%) over his last 5 games and has seen his playing time decrease significantly. On another note, freshman Trey Lewis saw significant time for the first time in conference play, notching 8 points.

That’s due in part to Colella’s struggles, but also because during the pre-game shootaround, Senior Cammeron Woodyard broke a bone in his foot, prematurely ending his college career.

Penn State returns to the Bryce Jordan Center for their last game before the Big Ten Tournament on Sunday, when they take on 13th ranked Michigan. The game will air on ESPN.
