Penn State came out of the half attacking the Hokies hard and fast, sprinting out on an 8-0 run out of the locker room to cut the Virginia Tech lead to three. Tech came back with a couple of buckets, though, and continues to hold a relatively comfortable lead in the second half.
Jeff Brooks finally got on the board for Penn State with a nice drive for a dunk. He was held scoreless in the first half and didn't even attempt a field goal. The Lions will need his per game contributions in the second half if they're going to come back on Virginia Tech.
Penn State is also watching the Hokies establish momentum on the glass, as the Hokies lead 20-15 in the rebounding department. If that continues, with as hot as VT is shooting, Penn State could be in trouble.
Virginia Tech leads Penn State in Blacksburg, 49-41.
