Penn State falls to Ole Miss

Lions come up just short on late chances to win

The Penn State Nittany Lions fell to the Ole Miss Rebels Sunday evening in State College. The game between the unranked opponents came down to the final 30 seconds, with Ole Miss nursing a two-point lead going into an Ole Miss time out. Penn State was unable to score on two late sets and lost 72-70.

The Rebels were led in scoring by freshman guard Jarvis Summers, who scored 27 points including the 3-point play that gave the Rebels the lead with 30 seconds left. This was the most Summers has scored in one game on the collegiate level. He’s an early favorite for many as SEC Freshman of the Year.

Penn State trailed 35-34 at the half. The second half started off strongly for Penn State as they scored 8 unanswered points in the first minutes.

The Rebels claimed the game in the last five minutes as they went on a 12-5 run with less than five minutes left.

While Penn State led in most statistical categories, including rebounds, the difference was in 3-pointers, where the Rebels hit 11 to Penn State's 6.

Penn State was led in scoring once again by junior guard Tim Frazier. Frazier put up 17 points during his 39 minutes on the court. Unfortunately, he was never able to find a rhythm with 3-pointers as he missed all three he took.

The loss was the Lions’ first at home this season. They’ll look to get their home record back on track this Thursday when they’re visited by the Lafayette Leopards at 7:00 pm.

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.
