Penn State Makes it Two Straight, Handles Minnesota 67-46

Micah Shrewsberry


With less than a 48-hour layoff between games, Penn State showed no signs of rust from Tuesday’s upset win over No. 19 Michigan State.

Behind 20 points from Jalen Pickett, the Nittany Lions took care of Minnesota, 67-46, at the Bryce Jordan Center to win its second straight and avenge this past Saturday’s loss to the Gophers in Minneapolis.

The Nittany Lions gave up 76 points to Minnesota in the first meeting, so giving up less than 50 was a much-needed change of pace for defensive-minded head coach Micah Shrewsberry.

Penn State took a 27-19 lead into the break. John Harrar led the way for the Nittany Lions with six points and six rebounds in the first 20 minutes. He finished with 10 and 10 for his sixth double-double of the season.

Myles Dread added 12 points for Penn State. For Minnesota, Jamison Battle led the Gophers with 16.

Penn State’s next game is Monday night at Maryland. Tip-off is scheduled for 7.
