Penn State vs. Indiana: Nittany Lions Trail 42-37 At The Half

Penn State played a good first half against Indiana at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sunday. The Hoosiers just played a better one.

Behind 15 points from Jordan Hulls on 5-6 shooting from the perimeter, Indiana took at 42-37 lead into halftime. The Hoosiers were hot, shooting 46.4 percent overall and 66.7 percent from 3-point territory.

Not to be outdone, however, Penn State battled their ranked opponents hard, putting up a solid 48.3 percent shooting effort while narrowly outrebounding the Hoosiers both overall (16-15) and on the offensive glass (7-6).

Both teams played a clean half, turning in over just six times each.

Tim Frazier leads the Lions in scoring at the half with 12 points on 4-12 shooting. Jermaine Marshall put up nine points and redshirt freshman Jonathan Graham was active, scoring eight points on 3-3 shooting. Ross Travis was busy, too, scoring four points and grabbing a team-high four rebounds in the half.
