Pirate first baseman Garrett Jones has more three-pointers right now in a half-time shooting contest than Penn State does in the game. Jones has six, the Nittany Lions have one.
Penn State had a remarkable 12 offensive rebounds in the half. That's a good game most nights. Only problem is the Lions haven't done anything with the second chances.
Penn State is down six despite being outshot 50%-22% in the first half. They can thank winning the turnover battle 12-4 for that.
David Jackson only played 11 minutes in the first half, Jeff Brooks only nine. With those two big scorers out of the lineup, it's no wonder Penn State had such trouble on offense in the half.
Maryland was 8-12 from the free throw line in the half, Penn State only 1-1. The only way Penn State will be able to turn Maryland's struggles from the line into an advantage is if the Lions get to the line themselves by attacking the basket.
