Penn State Vs. Minnesota: Nittany Lions Trail 33-31 At Half

Penn State led by as many as eight points midway through the first half against Minnesota at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sunday but shot selection and defense down the stretch cost the Nittany Lions as they took a 33-31 deficit to the locker room.

The Golden Gophers, led by 12 points from Joe Coleman shot a robust 55.6 percent from the field, including 3-6 from 3-point territory. Nine turnovers and a 6-2 deficit on the offensive boards, however, led to Minnesota allowing a Penn State squad shooting just 34.8 percent from the field to stay in the game.

Cammeron Woodyard and Tim Frazier made up most all of the offense for the Lions, scoring 15 and 13 points, respectively. The rest of the team combined for just three points on 1-11 shooting from the field. Second-leading scorer Jermaine Marshall was 0-5.
