Penn State has won four of its last five games including a shocking win at Michigan State. Most recently though, the Lions lost by 20 points at Michigan on Thursday. They sit tied for third in the Big Ten with a 6-4 record, 17-6 overall.
Leuer with a great drive, but can't get the shot to fall... PSU jacks up a quick one and it misses. UW boards.
Yes, Keaton started 20 of the first 22 for UW. I think he's gonna play today though. Leuer got the start, but Keaton practiced last night and looked okay. He's recovering from a left ankle injury.
Hughes drives to the rim and gets hammered Andrew Jones (not the former Braves outfielder). He'll go to the line as that's the first foul called in the game. It also brings us to the first media timeout.
Stat check: Leuer leads UW with 6 points and Jarmusz has 5. PSU has four different players with four points.
UW shot 40.7% and PSU shot 39.1%
UW out-rebounded PSU 17-12 and 4-0 on the offensive glass.
Hughes penetrates a PSU zone and finds Landry open under the hoop for an easy two. Two nice drive and dishes for Hughes this half.Cornely misses a 3-pointer and the ball is OB to UW. 32-26 UW lead.
PSU quickly goes back to man-to-man. They tried the zone for one possession, Hughes beat it and now they're back to man.Landry in the post... he's fouled. He'll shoot two. Andrew Jones has three fouls now for PSU.
Jones hits both and cuts it to two.UW up 34-32 with 12:58 left.Landry re-enters... he's fine.
Leuer has definitely stepped up. I think he was coming off the bench because Coach Ryan liked having a scorer on the bench to go to. A spark off the bench so to speak. He's looked good as a starter though too.
PSU back to a 2-3 zone and Hughes misses a late three. PSU turns it back over though and UW will go to Landry in the post for two. That quiets the crowd and puts UW back up 4 at 38-34 with 8:42 left.
We're back and J-Bo gets a steal... outlet pass to a streaking Joe... he lays it in! UW up 47-38.Battle answers with a quick two.
