Ole Miss is looking for its first win on the road against a Big Ten team tonight. Nittany Lions carrying the pride of the conference on their shoulders in this one.
Coming out of the timeout, Dundrecous Nelson drills another 3-pointer for Mississippi. That's the third triple Penn State has given up already. Perimeter defense has to get better.
Billy Oliver commits another bad turnover. He's really not helping the cause this evening.
Terrence Henry hits a 3-pointer for Ole Miss and Penn State's Matt Glover answers on the other end. It is raining deep ones here in the early going. The Rebels entered with poor perimeter shooting numbers, so Penn State clearly wants them to show they can hit the shots before it rotates its defense out. Might have to start rethinking that strategy given the turn of events early here.
With 11:56 to play in the first half, Penn State and Ole Miss are tied, 17-17.
