Nice to hear Colella is knocking down some three's today.
Sasa another layup after some great ball movement. 54-42, 15 min left.

Andrew, you're missing the Sasa Borovnjak breakout show.
58-42 after a putback by Donovon Jack. 13:35 left.
Colella now 5-of-6 from 3 today.
Lions up 63-42 with 12:12 left. Fans starting to crave Big Macs ...
The team needs to keep this play up. There's a few winnable games in the front end of the B1G schedule. I really like Jack's future if he can gain some weight.
Lions had been pulling away. Now 67-51. Pantophlet makes 1 of 2 at line. Dukes just 11 of 18 from stripe.
Travis puts it back. 69-51, eight minutes left.
Maybe Sasa will hold on to his scholarship next year?
Graham hoop puts Lions over 70 and gets lead back to 13.
Penn State has been flat offensively the last few possessions but still playing solid defense.
Marshall fouls out with 4:15 left. Had 9 points on 2-of-10 shooting today. Replaced by Kevin Montminy.
Montminy is fouled while shooting a three. Chambers points to shot clock, as if to say, "Be aware of the situation."
Montminy makes 1 of 3. 76-64 with 3 minutes left.
This one isn't quite over yet. 76-64 with 2:29 left.
Johnson hits pair and it's 76-66.
Colter hits straight-on 3 after grabbing loose ball and it's 78-69 with 2:00 left.
Lions need to make good decisions and hit free throws here.
Travis connects on 1 of 2 and it's 79-71 with 1:02 left.
Newbill just blew a tire -- his right foot literally went through the bottom of his shoe. He's wearing one blue and one white shoe now.
Winters 3 makes it 79-74.
Chambers timeout saves Travis from a five-second call. 43.6 remaining.
cannot believe they did not foul Travis there
Gotta be able to make the free throws now
Man this is sounding so much like the end of the Delaware State game. Where's a D and FT during the 2-min stretch?
October 12, 2013. PSU 43 - UM 40 (4 OT). Unfortunately this fan wasn't around long enough to see it!
Newbill is fouled with 6.2 seconds left.
He makes both.
Final score -- Penn State 84, Duquesne 74.
Heading into B1G play with 8-4 record... I'll take it.
Looking back at the schedule, I'm not sure Penn State could have done too much better (maybe 10-2?) with a healthy Tim Frazier.
Now, however, is when the real season starts. The Big Ten schedule is going to be brutal. But the Nittany Lions are showing more signs of life lately than they had in late November-early December.
If we can somehow manage to get to .500 @ home in conference and maybe steal 2 or 3 road games, I think I'd call that a succes.
Sucks to lose Frazier though. But it give alot of minutes for the younger guys to step up and develop.
The B1G MBB is LOADED this year. Best MBB conference in the country. The way I see it, is the only way to get better is to play against the best. This is definitely a building for PSU, especially in light of the of Frazier's talent for the year,.
.500 at home and 2 to 3 road wins would be a success with Frazier, which would equate to 8-10 in a stacked conference. 5 wins would be a success.
lower your expectations - this team will not win 7 B1G games
Without Frazier, If Penn State wins, I don't know, three Big Ten games, I'd call that a success.
