Penn State Basketball Drops Second Game of European Tour

After rolling to a 110-64 win in the first game of its preseason European Tour, the Penn State men’s basketball team dropped its second game against Belgian club Sint-Jan, 94-88.

The Nittany Lions were down by as many as 21 points in the contest, but battled back and cut Sint-Jan’s lead all the way down to 4 points late in the fourth quarter. The team was led by PG Tim Frazier, who had 26 points on the evening with 9 coming in the game’s final period. Frazier also snatched 5 rebounds and dished out 5 assists.

While the team’s other star guard, D.J. Newbill, didn’t have much of an impact on the night — no points and a rebound in just over 16 minutes of play — other guys on the team stepped up, most notably Ross Travis. While he isn’t known as much of a scorer, Travis was second on the team with 19 points and led the team with 11 rebounds.

The only other Nittany Lions to score in double digits were Donovon Jack, who had 14 points and 8 rebounds, and Geno Thorpe, who put up 12 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds. Aside from them, only Graham Woodward (7 points), Allen Roberts (6), and Brandon Taylor (4) scored in the contest.

As a team, the Nittany Lions shot 39 percent from the field and 34 percent from three. Five Nittany Lions hit threes, and all of them made two shots from downtown — Frazier, Jack, Roberts, Thorpe, and Woodward.

Penn State will wrap up their European tour on August 15, when it takes on the Dutch club Binnenland.
