Fairfield Vs. Penn State: Nittany Lions Win, 64-49

Tre Bowman getting some minutes now in Jeff Brooks' stead. Lions have gone small with Bowman, Tim Frazier, Taran Buie, Andrew Jones and Billy Oliver out there right now.

Andrew Jones flushes a Taran Buie miss. Another quietly solid night for the senior center with eight points and 11 rebounds to this point. He's consistently pulling down those boards this year. The scoring isn't always there, but as long as he's grabbing rebounds, he's going to be serving his purpose.

Bench is emptying with Steve Kirkpatrick and Jermaine Marshall replacing Oliver and Jones.

Tre Bowman just tried to play football with Taran Bue, throwing a baseball inbound didn't work.

Penn State holds Fairfield under 50 points, a true testament to just how poorly the Stags looked on offense and yet another sign that Penn State is playing pretty darn well defensively to start this season. No team has topped 60 points on the Lions yet, so good signs for Ed DeChellis and the coaching staff even as the offense continues to look for an identity.

Final Score: Penn State 64, Fairfield 49.

I'm heading down to the press room and will have more later. Until then, stay classy folks.
