Penn State finally slows things down on its first possession coming out of the timeout and Talor Battle calmly sticks a three from the far corner. On the second possession, he comes down and hits another, so Penn State already has more treys in the first eight minutes of this game than it had in all 40 minutes against St. Joseph's on Tuesday.
Fairfield's coach is an adamant guy on the sideline. I can hear his every word all the way up here.
Billy Oliver is Penn State's first sub, replacing David Jackson who just blew a lay up. Oliver had a quiet night against St. Joe's, so it'll be interesting to see if he bounces back after five points in the opener.
Penn State's offense scored 13 points in that segment with three deep ones. The offense looks a lot more balanced tonight, though more of the deeper shots are going right now.
With 11:13 to play in the half, Penn State leads Fairfield 17-10.
