Fairfield Vs. Penn State First Half Notes: Under 16 Timeout

Sparse crowd at the Bryce Jordan Center tonight as many of the students have left for Thanksgiving break. It's mostly locals and students who have hung around only to head down to Washington for the football game tomorrow. Speaking of the football game, it's left press row nearly empty. Not sure if any of the newspapers are here tonight. Even Steve Jones, Penn State's regular play-by-play announcer is absent.

Penn State is really pushing the pace early, and taking some shots early in the shot clock. They're getting pretty good looks too. Jeff Brooks hit a three to open the scoring for Penn State this evening. Hopefully, for the Lions' sake, they don't miss the next 20 in a row again.

Penn State still looking very good in half court defense early on. The Lions are forcing the turnover and keeping the ball outside the paint for the most part. We'll see if Penn State's excellent defense to this point in the season continues tonight.

It's 4-4 with 15:12 remaining in the half.
