Minnesota Vs. Penn State Second Half Updates: Lions Remain In Tight Game

Talor Battle already has 20 points and Penn State has needed every one of them. He appears to be the only Penn State player with any offensive flow right now. David Jackson and Jeff Brooks need to start hitting a few jumpers to get into the game here. Then, the Nittany Lions are going to be tough for the Golden Gophers to contain.

Andrew Jones picks up his fourth foul away from the ball. Not a smart decision at all by the senior.

Phenomenal play by David Jackson throwing the ball off a Minnesota player to help Penn State retain possession. After Jeff Brooks gets a bucket on the ensuing offensive play, he takes a charge from Ralph Sampson III, too. Gritty play from the senior, even with his shot not quite on.

Check that. Jackson hits a three. He's taking over.

Sampson III gets run from the game, picking up his fourth foul, again on offense. Minnesota is going to miss him until the final couple minutes.

Minnesota goes on a quick 8-0 run to cut the Penn State lead down to 47-45. That's the score with 7:34 remaining here in the second half.
