Double header today. Let's try to win both.
Sasa has first shot blocked, banks second shot in.
2-2, 18 minutes left in half.
Once again, just so hard for Penn State to even advance the ball toward the basket via the pass.
Taylor gets inside. His hoop cuts it to 7-4, Purdue.
Ackerman and Akosa getting some very early minutes ...
And Ackerman called for moving screen just before Akosa dribbles it out of bounds.
Tough start to the today with Arsenal?
Not sure why Purdue's recruiting has fallen off the last couple of years (Indiana's resurgeance might have something to do with it), but it'll be interesting to see what Painter can do with what looks like the 8th-or-9th most talented team in the conference.
It's just a matter of how many City are going to pour in at this point. I get the red card, but it just ruined the game. That's all I'll say about that.
Taylor gets 3 to go down. 9-7 Boilers, 13:40 left in half.
IDK why he faded away from that mid-range jumper. could have easily got the board.
Tough way to start a game.
Interesting rotation we're seeing today. Surprised Akosa is still in there.
Penn State doing a much better job on the boards at both ends than it did in the first two games of the week. Still can't shoot.
Marshall floats in one-hander, though, to tie it at 9-9. 12:20 left in half.
Montminy with some early run.
Chambers must be concerned about saving some legs. Third game in 7 days for Lions.
He's going to need more than legs for the next two weeks.
Is it just me or does Sasa wind up further from the basket each time he tries to post up?
Marshall gets a rare transition hoop after nice defensive play from Montminy.
15-11 Boilers, 8:15 left in half.
I swear is Sasa misses another 2 footer....
Jeff, how does the team shoot in warmups? I just have a hard time believing D-1 basketball players shoot this bad all the time.
It's not just you.
No. 35 is Kevin Onyeaka, walk-on from Harrisburg who joined team this fall.
Chambers wants a timeout after Purdue pushes lead to 18-11.
They don't light it up but they're not this bad.
It's all layups or jumpers, though. Wonder if guys like Graham and Sasa would be better off shooting 2-footers in warmups, though this goes against roughly 100 years of basketball tradition.
Nice block by Taylor without fouling on the transition defense.
Followed by another three. He's really getting better every game.
19-16 after another 3 by Taylor. Kid has a pretty stroke.
Taylor has been one of the better players today, but why does he want to slow down a potential break. He's done it twice now.
First Colella sighting of day. Eleven different Nittany Lions have seen action in the half.
