Jonathan Graham and Matt Glover are the first two subs in the game for Penn State. Jermaine Marshall, back from suspension as of Monday, follows shortly thereafter, and coach Pat Chambers continues to show he's looking to use his bench more than Ed DeChellis did last season.
Marshall and Graham appear to have a nice connection going. On consecutive possessions, Marshall finds Graham down low for a pair with a couple of nifty passes.
Tim Frazier is into double figures already. He's been a little sloppy with his passes tonight, but he continues to show he can carry the scoring burden for this team.
Trey Lewis gets a nice ovation from the crowd as he returns to the game. His 17 points in the opener against Hartford have certainly made these fans believers.
The Blackbirds continue to hang around here as Penn State has left some 3-pointers open in transition. The Lions have thrown a couple of punches, but Long Island has come right back twice now and this game is still in doubt. late in the half.
With 3:46 to play in the first half, Penn State leads 30-27.
