Penn State Vs. Virginia Tech: Lions Trail At Half

Penn State has surrendered the perimeter big time early on in a crucial non-conference road matchup with Virginia Tech.

Tech's Malcolm Delaney is 4-4 from beyond the arc, and has staked the Hokies to a 44-33 haltime lead at Castle Colosseum. Overall, Tech is shooting a whopping 62% from the field while Penn State stands at a mortal 45%, which includes 6-10 from three-point territory.

Talor Battle and Tim Frazier lead the Nittany Lions with seven points each here in the early going. Delaney has scored 15 to lead all scorers.

If Penn State is going to make a game of this in the second half, it's going to have to play better defense in and outside the arc. Allowing Virginia Tech to shoot 62% is no recipe for victory, and this will be blowout city if the Hokies continue to shoot that well.
