Sean Johnson is torching Penn State early. He scored eight points for the Dukes before the first media timeout, six of them coming on 3-point attempts. He enters as Duquesne's leading scorer at 16.3 points per game, so the Nittany Lions have to keep better track of him, because he could have a big night if he continues to score at this pace.
Trey Lewis has checked into the game for his first action since the Mississippi game on Sunday, in which he played very little. He's been bothered by an existing ankle injury, so it'll be interesting to see how he comes back from the injury.
Billy Oliver is out of the gate strong, already with five points. He's had an up-and-down season to this point, but the junior looks to be a calming force out there here on the road.
With 11:26 to play in the first half, Penn State leads Duquesne, 20-18.
