Penn State takes on Fairfield at 7:30 in the Bryce Jordan Center tonight looking to run its record to 3-0 early in the season. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network. The Lions will be looking to play better on offense this evening after posting a 1-21 effort from three-point territory on Tuesday against St. Joseph's.
At 7:30 tonight at the Bryce Jordan Center, the Lions will take on Fairfield with hopes their post offense will continue to carry the team if their shooting remains cold.
"Coach preaches getting the ball inside and we’ve really been trying to do that with [Jackson and Brooks]," senior Talor Battle said. "They are really putting the ball in the hole so hopefully they can continue that."
Even though Battle leads the team with 18 points per game so far, he hasn’t found his shot yet through the first two games. He has made only 11-of-29 shots — less than 38 percent — while going 3-for-14 from 3-point range.
Fairfield is 1-1 thus far in 2010-2011. The Stags beat Sacred Heart last Saturday but fell to Rutgers on Tuesday. Fairfield has been picked to win the MAAC and will likely be one of if not the biggest test Penn State has faced thus far in the early going.
