Penn State Vs. Northwestern: Nittany Lions Trail 34-28 At The Half

Penn State jumped out to an early eight-point lead in the first half against Northwestern on Saturday night at the Bryce Jordan Center, but some stagnant halfcourt offense toward the end of the period led to a 34-28 deficit as the teams headed to the break.

Tim Frazier, who made good use of the fast break early on, led the Nittany Lions (12-16, 4-11 Big Ten) with eight points in the half. Jonathan Graham and Cammeron Woodyard got off to good starts offensively as well, contributing six and five points, respectively.

The Wildcats (16-11, 6-9 Big Ten) were led by the scoring trio of Dave Sobolewski, John Shurna and Drew Craford. Sobolewski, who scored 20 points the first time these two teams met but is just a 9.3 points per game scorer, had eight points in the half while Shurna and Crawford had seven points each.
