Seth Lundy-less Penn State falls at No. 16 Ohio State

It would have been hard enough for Penn State to beat No. 16 Ohio State on the road with Seth Lundy.

Without their leading scorer and best defender, it proved to be an impossible task.

Penn State trailed 27-22 at the half. Greg Lee and Sam Sessoms combined for more than half of the Nittany Lions’ scoring, each with seven points.

In the second half, the Lions never let the Buckeyes pull away but never tied the game or took the lead, either, and Ohio State held on.

Ohio State’s E.J. Liddell finished the game with 19 points to lead all scorers, and Zed Key added 10 for the Buckeyes. Sessoms led Penn State with 15, and Jalen Pickett added 11.

The Nittany Lions will look to bounce back Wednesday evening against Minnesota. Tipoff is at 6:30
