Penn State takes care of St. Francis Brooklyn, 74-59

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Three nights after an ugly loss at UMass, Penn State men’s basketball got back to Bryce Jordan Center and back above .500 with a 74-59 win over St. Francis-Brooklyn.

Sam Sessoms led the way for the Lions with a career-high 26 points, and John Harrar (14) and Seth Lundy (10) also cracked double-figures. Harrar also added a game-high 13 rebounds for his second double-double.

The Nittany Lions are now 2-1 in the first year of the Micah Shrewsberry era and haven’t lost let at home.

Penn State overcame a sluggish start to lead 44-27 at the half. To no surprise, it was Sessoms and Lundy leading the way, with Sessoms scoring 16 points in the first 20 minutes and Lundy adding nine.

The Nittany Lions never lost that advantage in the second half and ended with a relatively easy win.

For St. Francis, Patrick Emilien led the scoring with 16. The Nittany Lions will look to make in two in a row Monday night against Cornell at Bryce Jordan.
