PSR Logo
In its first game in Lincoln, Neb. since the 1995 NIT and first since the Huskers joined the Big Ten conference, Penn State got a career-high 30 points from Tim Frazier but fell, 70-58, to Nebraska.

The Huskers shot 55 percent for the game to hold a double-digit lead for much of the game over a Penn State team that hit just 33 percent and had only Frazier reach double-digits in scoring. Frazier broke 20 points for a Big Ten leading eighth time on the year and added six rebounds and four assists. Nebraska was paced by 19 points from Bo Spencer.

The Huskers pushed a 12-point halftime margin to 18, 45-27, early in the second half and Penn State was never able to get the lead under double-digits. The Lions got within 11 midway through the half and made three-straight defensive stops, but couldn’t capitalize on four chances to get the lead under 10.

Back-to-back Husker threes pushed the margin back to 18 later in the half.

Penn State went to halftime down 12 after struggling shooting 29 percent in the first 20 minutes while the Huskers hit 52 percent from the floor and dominated the rebounding 19-9.

Penn State jumped to an early 6-3 lead, but saw the Husker go on a 10-0 run to take a 13-6 lead following a Toney McCray three and three free throws from Bo Spencer after being fouled on a shot from behind the arc.

Sasa Borovnjak ended the run with a bucket and Penn State crept back within four, 19-15, following a Frazier three.

The Huskers got back-to-back lay-ups to retake the momentum and went on an 8-0 run to take a 17-15 lead with 5:47 to play.

Frazier got a steal and lay-up to get the lead back to 10, 32-22, with 2:10 left, but the Lions missed a couple of chances to cut it further and Nebraska ended the scoring in the half with a jumper from DylanTalley to take a 34-22 lead to the locker room.

Penn State will return to the Bryce Jordan Center Sunday for a 4:00 p.m. clash with Minnesota live on the Big Ten Network.

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.
