Penn State Hoops Crushes Okapi 110-64 in Belgian Opener

Penn State basketball opened up its European tour and welcomed back Tim Frazier with a resounding 110-64 victory over Okapi Aalstar juniors last night in Belgium. Freshman Graham Woodward led the way with 18 points.

Fifth-year senior Frazier, who sat out most of last season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon, returned to the floor with 10 points and reportedly showed no signs of the injury. Brandon Taylor (15), Ross Travis (14), Allen Roberts (13), D.J. Newbill (11), and Julian Moore (10) all notched double-digit scoring performances of their own.

“Our guys are really sharing the ball,” head coach Patrick Chambers said. “They’re looking up the floor so we’re getting easy ones. Unlike years past, we’re making extra passes here and there, which is exciting. We might be passing up a good shot for a great shot. And that gets them all pumped up, you saw the passion and the energy, and we have to keep that going.”

Penn State travels north to Antwerp this afternoon for a 2:30 p.m. ET tip-off against St Jan of the Belgian Second Division.
