PSU wins 70-50.
Talor Battle has continued on his hot streak, dropping 24 points and 8 rebounds against the Wildcats. His early efforts to start the season has earned him conference Player of the Week honors. He certainly deserves it. What a difference a year makes, he’s averaging 20.5 PPG with nearly 5 assists and rebounds per game.
This is our first performance where we made a sincere effort to establish an inside game. Cornley had 17 points and 8 boards, while shooting 6-11 from the floor. While that’s a fine night, I felt like Cornley missed some shots he usually makes and left a lot of points on the floor (including four at the line). But you can’t really make that criticism when he shoots over 50% from the floor.
We struggled to start the game, getting down by as much as 8, but we dominated the second half. We cut down on turnovers and only committed 8 for the game. Time for the team to get their first taste away from State College….
