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.
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.
