Men's Basketball Leaps Long Island 66-45

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; December 13, 2006 - Trailing at the half, Penn State charged out of the gate in the second 20 minutes going on a 20-4 run to open up a 15-point lead before going on to down Long Island (4-6) 66-45 Wednesday night in the Bryce Jordan Center. It marked the largest margin of victory for Penn State on the year.

Penn State improved to 7-3, the best start under fourth-year coach Ed DeChellis, despite playing without senior point-guard Ben Luber (Richboro, Pa.). Luber sat with tendonitis his left ankle that began to cause him pain on Tuesday. Luber is the third Nittany Lion to miss a start with an injury this season joining Geary Claxton (West Haven, Conn.) and Jamelle Cornley (Columbus, Ohio).

"We didn?t take tough shots in the second half," DeChellis said. "I thought we took really good shots. If you take good shots, it doesn?t lead to long rebounds. I thought we had good floor balance and good shot selection."

Penn State was led on the night by Claxton who posted his third-straight double-double and the 12th of his career with 21 points and 13 rebounds and was strong on the defensive end. Mooch Jackson (Gaithersburg, Md.), playing the point in place of Luber, tied his season high with 12 points and locked down LIU leading scorer James Williams holding the senior guard to eight points on 3-of-11 shooting, nearly nine points below his 16.8 average. Danny Morrissey (Cleveland, Ohio) and Brandon Hassell (Farmersville, Ohio) joined in double-figures with 10 apiece.

"(Mooch) played very well tonight," DeChellis said. "I thought he was under control, didn?t turn the ball over. He was very solid and we needed a solid performance out of him tonight. I thought he was very good defensively. He did a great job guarding Williams tonight."

Long Island was paced by Kellen Allen who scored 12 points. Aubin Scott added eight points and nine rebounds.

Penn State trailed 29-28 at the half after shooting a season-low 30 percent from the floor. The Nittany Lions had as much as a seven-point lead in the first 20 minutes, but Long Island shot 46 percent from the field in the half and used a late 11-3 run to take the lead to the locker room.

The Nittany Lions clamped down on defense in the second half and found their shooting touch holding LIU to just six field goals and 6-of-20 shooting (30 percent) in the second 20 minutes. Meanwhile, Penn State heated up shooting 56 percent (14-25) and owned the boards turning a stalemate at the half into a season-high 17-rebound edge on the glass, 39-22, for the game.

Hassell kick started the second half run picking a Cornley miss out of the air and slamming it home in the first 20 seconds. He would go on to post all of his 10 points and four rebounds in the half.

Six Nittany Lions scored in the run to start the half as Jackson, Cornley, Morrissey, Claxton and Mike Walker (Lewisberry, Pa.) all contributed. A Walker three and Claxton bucket in the lane capped the spurt giving Penn State a 48-33 lead with 11:23 to play.

LIU battled back and cut the margin to eight at 50-42 following a Williams three and a free throw from Scott.

Penn State scored the next 12 points over the following five minutes forcing four missed buckets by LIU and two turnovers to put the game away with a 62-42 lead with 2:05 to play.

"We?re making some strides," DeChellis said. "We haven?t played a game this year with everyone healthy and that?s a little frustrating. I thought our kids played pretty well second half. I thought they did the things they had to do to win the game. I think that?s a very good trait for a team."

The Nittany Lions started the game shooting from the arc making five of their first six field goals from the three-point line. Claxton sparked Penn State early hitting a pair of threes and converting on a three-point play. Back-to-back threes by Claxton and Walker opened an 18-13 lead with 10 minutes to play.

Claxton scored another pair of buckets, he would post 13 in the half, and Morrissey drained a three to give the Lions their biggest lead of the half at 25-18.

Long Island came back to score eight straight points to take a 26-25 lead with just under two minutes to play. A pair of buckets from Allen, one from Scott and a pair of free throws from Paska Morkeliunas fueled the run.

Penn State regained the lead at 28-26 after a free throw from Milos Bogetic (Podgorica, Serbia and Montenegro) and a pair at the line from Jackson, who had eight in the half. Long Island had the last possession and missed on its first attempt but the ball bounced long and found its way to Scott who drained a three with a second left on the clock for the Blackbird halftime lead.

Penn State returns to action Saturday in the Bryce Jordan Center as they take on Southeast Louisiana at 4:00 p.m. The two teams have never met.

Nittany Lions Fall 69-66 At The Buzzer to Southeastern Louisiana
Four Lions in double figures; Penn State hosts Maine Dec. 23 at noon

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; December 16, 2006 ? The Penn State basketball team suffered a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Southeastern Louisiana (7-4) Saturday in the Bryce Jordan Center as Daryl Cohen knocked down a 3-pointer as time expired to give SLU the 69-66 win. The loss dropped the Nittany Lions to 7-4 on the year as they head into a six-day break for finals week.

?The guy can play, he?s a good player and he made the shot,? Penn State head coach Ed DeChellis said. ?You don?t see many shots grazing the backboard from the corner and going in. You don?t see too many that way anymore. But, it did tonight and that?s kind of how the day went.

?Everything that could go wrong did go wrong, but throughout the game there were plays that we didn?t really make. We couldn?t guard him (Cohen) in time, got out rebounded. That was critical; we couldn?t contain the ball in time. We knew this was going to be a really hard game, because these guys can score. I thought our guys came out and worked hard in the second half and we should?ve won the game.?

Jamelle Cornley (Columbus, Ohio) led four Nittany Lions in double figures with 18 points and seven rebounds. Geary Claxton (West Haven, Conn.) chipped in with 13 points and six rebounds and some stifling defense. Danny Morrissey (Cleveland, Ohio) finished with 12 and Milos Bogetic (Podgorica, Montenegro) continued his strong play finishing with a season-high 12 points and six boards. Penn State played its second straight game without senior point-guard Ben Luber (Richboro, Pa.) who sat with tendonitis in his left ankle.

Cohen led SLU with 28 points, including 21 in the first 16 minutes, before Claxton switched over to take him man-to-man and held him to seven in the final 24 minutes. Cohen hit 7-of-10 from the three-point line on the night, five in the first half. Terry Bryant added 16, including several key buckets down the stretch.

Both teams shot well from the field with Penn State knocking down 55 percent (26-47) of it shots but a season-low 3-of-10 from three-point range. SLU hit 46 percent (27-58) overall and 47 percent (8-17) from the arc.

Having trailed for nearly the entire game, Penn State took its first lead since the 17:15 mark of the first half when Morrissey knocked down a 15-foot jumper on an up and under move and was fouled by Cohen with 48 seconds to play. Morrissey completed the three-point play at the line to give the Nittany Lions a 64-62 lead.

A Bryant foul-line jumper knotted the game at 64-64 seconds later. Penn State called a timeout with 28 seconds on the clock and set up their last shot attempt. Mooch Jackson dumped the ball into Cornley with 12 seconds to play. The 6-5 forward made a strong move in the paint and was fouled with 10 seconds on the clock. He stepped to the line and drained two free throws to give the Nittany Lions a 66-64 lead.

SLU had time for a shot of their own, and Bryant was fouled by Jackson on the other end while attempting a 16-foot jumper with .6 seconds to play. He made both free throws to even the game at 66-66.

Penn State called timeout and set up a last second play with Jackson in-bounding from the SLU baseline and attempting to throw the ball deep to Claxton. His pass went wide out of bounds and SLU took possession under their basket. On the inbounds play, Cohen streaked to the corner where he fielded the pass and sank the 3-pointer from the baseline as the buzzer sounded.

?We got excited and shot too early which game them an opportunity to do what they did, instead of taking the last shot or a leave a second or two, we went too early,? DeChellis said. ?Then we got what we wanted, got to the free throw line, and then we fouled the jump shooter. Which is really tough and we can?t do that. Then on the last second play we threw the ball out of bounds. We were trying to get the ball to the free throw line extended so Geary could make a play on the ball and possibly get fouled and go to the free throw line and get two shots. I?ve actually won two games with that.?

The Nittany Lions opened the second half with 9-3 run capped off by a Cornley lay-up, which cut a 32-26 SLU halftime lead to 39-35 with 15:37 to play. Penn State never trailed by more than eight points in the second half, but the Lions weren?t able to get within two of SLU until 6:33 to play despite shooting 71 percent (15-21) in the final 20 minutes. Every Penn State run was answered by SLU on the other end and the Nittany Lions squandered several chances to grab the momentum.

Penn State had no answer for Cohen in the first half 16 minutes as the 6-3 guard scored 21 of the Lions 32 points in the first half. Cohen made 5-of-7 threes in the half and 8-of-11 from the floor, including a stretch of 14-straight points over five minutes that helped SLU to a 10-point lead, 30-20, with 3:48 to play in the half.

Cohen hit four threes during the spurt, many from the 22-foot range. Penn State stayed close with a big half from Bogetic who hit a pair of threes and scored seven-straight during a stretch midway through the half. Bogetic ended the first 20 minutes with a team-high 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting, 2-for-2 from the arc. Bogetic?s play made up for a tough scoring half from Claxton who went 0-for-5 from the floor and finished with two points. The Nittany Lions got just 10 points from the team?s top three scorers, Claxton, Cornley and Morrissey, in the first half.

Claxton made his presence felt on the defensive end as he switched to guarding Cohen with around four minutes to play in the half. Penn State finished the first 20 minutes on a 6-2 run with Claxton slowing down Cohen. Cornley finished in the lane and Mike Walker fed Brandon Hassell who was fouled while finishing a nice transition lay-up.

Bryant answered for SLU. Walker hit a nifty turn-around jumper from the free throw stripe to finish the scoring. Penn State had the last possession of the half and set up a play out of a timeout but couldn?t get a good shot. Hassell rebounded a desperate three from Morrissey but had his put-back attempt rejected.

The Nittany Lions will get a six-day break before returning to action Dec. 23 vs. Maine in the Bryce Jordan Center. That game is scheduled for a 12:00 p.m. tip. Maine is 5-5 on the year and will not play again until the 23rd. The two teams have never met.

Men's Basketball Mauls Maine, 75-42
Claxton scores 21 in victory over Black Bears; Lions retun home vs. VMI on Dec. 30 at 4 p.m.

# Box Score

David "Mooch" Jackson scored seven points, pulled down eight rebounds and notched four assists in the win.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; December 23, 2006 ? Penn State wrapped up its eighth win of the season early before heading off to celebrate the holidays. The Nittany Lions took a 16-point lead at the half and extended to 30 mid-way through the second period before going on to down Maine, 75-42, Saturday before a festive crowd at the Bryce Jordan Center.

The 33-point win was Penn State?s largest of the year and improved the Nittany Lions to 8-4, equaling Penn State?s most regular season non-conference wins since entering the Big Ten. Penn State will wrap up its non-conference slate on Dec. 30 when the Lions take on VMI in the Jordan Center.

?We?ve got a long way to go,? Penn State coach Ed DeChellis said. ?We?ve got a lot of work to do, but I think it gives the kids some confidence again and lets them go home with a good feeling and that?s important. We?ll come back here on the 27th and get back to work and try to get their attention.?

Penn State was led by Geary Claxton (West Haven, Conn.) who recorded 21 points, his 11th career 20-point game and third this season, and added seven rebounds. Danny Morrissey (Cleveland, Ohio) logged 13 points, hitting 3-of-4 from the three-point arc, and Jamelle Cornley (Columbus, Ohio) netted 10 points and eight rebounds. Mooch Jackson (Gaithersburg, Md.) equaled a career-high with eight rebounds and added seven points, including two on a break-away dunk, four assists and three steals. Senior guard Ben Luber (Richboro, Pa.) returned to the starting line-up for the first time in two games but played just 18 minutes.

Maine dropped to 5-6 on the year. The Black Bears were led by Jon Sheets who scored 10 points on 3-of-14 shooting.

The Nittany Lions took a 35-19 lead into halftime as they shut down Maine?s offense. The Black Bears shot just 7-of-28 (25 percent) in both halves and committed 18 turnovers. The 16-point halftime edge marked Penn State most comfortable halftime margin of the year.

?We new what each guy could do and couldn?t do and we tried to exploit those weaknesses that they had,? Morrissey said. ?You know, pressuring a certain guy making him drive and laying off a certain guy who we knew couldn?t shoot the ball really well. So, coach did a good job of telling us what we needed to do.?

A Brandon Hassell (Farmersville, Ohio) dunk and a pair of free throws from Jackson quickly extended the lead to 20 in the first minute of the second half and Penn State cruised home from there as Maine continued to struggle mightily from the field and the Lions played with energy and emotion.

Penn State was very effective in transition all day scoring 17 fast break points and 19 off turnovers as they exploited Maine for easy shots. The Lions blew the game open when Jackson pushed the ball up the floor converting a three-point play with a tough lay-up and free throw after the foul. Mike Walker (Lewisberry, Pa.) fired a sweet pass to Milos Bogetic (Podgorica, Montenegro) for a transition lay-up on the next possession and then a Walker three moments later opened up a 25-point lead, 53-28.

Penn State sailed home from there pushing the margin over 30 with a Claxton bucket with 8:38 to play and to as much as 35 following a Clay Scovill (Lititz, Pa.) lay-up with 1:27 to play. The Lions went to their bench with six minutes left in the game getting several Lions some rare minutes on the floor. Eleven of the 13 Lions that played scored in the game and Penn State got 33 points off its bench.

?We wanted to get everyone in the game,? DeChellis said. ?We?ve had a lot of close tough games, it was nice to get a little breather and not have to worry about fouls, timeouts, the next play. It was nice to kind of sit there and watch the guys play and have some fun. Again, we didn?t get Andrew (Jones) in the game because he?s red-shirting and we didn?t get (Adam) Highberger in the game because he?s also redshirting. We think Adam will get better, so we think redshirting him is going to make him better.?

The only other player not to play was freshman David Jackson (Farrell, Pa.) who has been out since the third game of the season with a stress fracture in his left leg and is edging closer to becoming a medical red-shirt candidate.

Claxton and Morrissey led Penn State early scoring eight points apiece to tally16 of the Lions? first 22 points. Cornley turned it on late in the half scoring six of Penn State?s final eight knocking down a couple of nice jump hooks in the lane.

Both teams struggled shooting early with Penn State hitting 33 percent and Maine 15 percent after the first eight minutes, but Penn State got it going after that, shooting 46 percent for the game, and maintained a high defensive intensity playing a tough man-to-man and a 1-3-1 zone.

The Black Bears managed just two points in the first seven-and-a-half minutes of the game as Penn State took an early 10-2 lead.

A Morrissey three-pointer and two free throws from the sophomore sparked a Penn State run as the Lions opened a 22-10 lead with 9:13 to play in the first half.

Following a bucket from Maine?s Junior Bernal, the Lions went on another 11-0 run capped by back-to-back buckets from Cornley and a transition dunk off a steal from the 6-1 Jackson to grab a 33-12 lead. Penn State pushed the ball and got several easy baskets in transition while exploiting the middle of the Maine zone in the half court. Cornley ended the half with 10 and Claxton posted 11.

Penn State will close out 2006 with its final non-conference game of the season when the Nittany Lions take on VMI at 4:00 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 30, in the Bryce Jordan Center. The game will be webcast by ESPN360 and can be heard live on the Penn State Sports Network. Penn State is 2-1 all-time against VMI, which is averaging an NCAA leading 102 points per game this season.

Season and single game tickets for all Penn State home games are available by calling the Penn State Athletic Ticket Office at 814-863-1000 or 800-833-5555. For groups of 10 or more, ticket discounts and preferred seating options are available by calling 814-863-6757.

Nittany Lions Shatter School Scoring Mark In Out-Running VMI 129-111 Saturday
Claxton posts 1,000th career point, Penn State opens Big Ten play Wednesday vs. Northwestern
Geary Claxton had a career-high 31 points in the win over VMI.

# Box Score
# Post-game Quotes

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; December 30, 2006 - Geary Claxton (West Haven, Conn.) led seven Penn State players in double figures, scoring his 1,000th career point in the process, and Penn State shattered the school record for points in a game as the Nittany Lions out-ran Virginia Military Institute for a 129-111 victory Saturday in the Bryce Jordan Center. The win improved Penn State to 9-4 on the year as the Lions set a record for most regular season non-conference home wins and equaled their best mark ever heading into Big Ten play.

?It?s a tremendous honor you know, he?s been very, very good for us,? Penn State coach Ed DeChellis said of Claxton joining the 1,000-point club. ?I?m very, very happy for him. He?s worked extremely hard. I like the way he got it. It was a nice alley-oop dunk from Mike (Walker), so it kind of put an exclaimation point on it.?

Penn State's 129 points easily surpassed the old record of 110 set by a Jesse Arnelle-led team in a 1954 victory over Colgate and marked the 19th 100-point game in PSU history. It also easily topped the previous BJC record of 105 set in a 105-103 victory over Siena in the 2000 NIT. The 240 combined points for both teams also set a school record, smashing the previous mark of 209 posted in a 121-88 loss to Duke in 1965. Duke?s output had been the previous high for any team in a game in which Penn State competed prior to Saturday.

Point totals weren?t the only records to fall Saturday as Penn State set a school mark for assists (36) and Jordan Center marks for rebounds (53) and field goals (45) and the Lions? 52 free throw attempts were just one shy of the school record of 53 set in 1991. Meanwhile, VMI, which entered the game averaging NCAA-bests of 101 points and 14.5 three-pointers per game, set Penn State opponent records making 19 threes and attempting 54 while posting the third highest point total by a Penn State opponent and the most ever in a losing effort.

Three Nittany Lions scored 20 or more points ? all three posting career-highs ? and seven Penn State players scored in double-figures. Claxton led the way with a career-high 31 points, the 69th 30-point game in Penn State history and the first since Marlon Smith posted 35 vs. Long Island in 2005. Claxton also added 11 rebounds for his 13th career double-double.

With 1:55 left to play, Claxton rammed home a nice alley-oop pass from Mike Walker, Penn State?s 12th dunk of the game, for his final points. The jam pushed his career scoring total to 1,001, making him the 27th player in Penn State history to reach 1,000 career points. With 491 career rebounds, Claxton stands on the cusp of becoming just the 15th PSU player to post 1,000 points and 500 rebounds for their career.

Jamelle Cornley (Columbus, Ohio) also had a career high with 25 points and added eight boards while shooting 75 percent (12-16) from the floor in 32 very strong minutes of action. Brandon Hassell (Farmersville, Ohio) also reached a career high with 20 points, seven of which came on dunks, as he shot 9-of-11. Penn State recorded 48 fast break points and 76 points in the paint, most of which came on dunks, lay-ups and drives to the paint as the Lions mastered VMI?s 1-2-1-1 full-court press.

VMI entered the game averaging an NCAA-best 16 steals per game and causing an average of 30 turnovers per game. Penn State attacked their trapping defense as the Keydets got 11 steals and Penn State turned the ball over just 19 times in the fast paced, up and down game in which the teams combined for 159 shot attempts.

?Really, the kids did what we asked them to do,? DeChellis said. ?Attack the basket, get to the free-throw line, keep them off the glass, and take care of the ball. For the most part we took care of the ball. We had some silly turnovers that led to some baskets at one point in time, but for the most part, playing that kind of tempo for 40 minutes and having 19 (turnovers)? that was pretty good. I thought we did a good job of taking care of the basketball.?

Penn State shot a season-high 59 percent (45-76) from the floor including a sizzling 70 percent (26-37) in the second half and dominated the boards 53-34. The Lions shot 34-of-52 (65 percent) from the free throw line as the Keydets committed 37 personal fouls and Penn State spent most of the game in the double-bonus.

Mooch Jackson (13), Milos Bogetic (11), Danny Morrissey (10) and Mike Walker (10) also reached double-figures. Walker went 3-of-6 from the three-point line on the night, including two run boosters in the first half, to move into ninth place all-time on Penn State?s career chart for three-pointers made with 101.

VMI had six players in double-figures led by Reggie Williams with 28 and Chavis Holmes with 27. Williams, who entered the game fourth in the NCAA in scoring averaging 26 points per game, shot 9-of-20 from the field and 3-of-10 from three-point range. The Keydets began the game cold hitting 1-of-9 from the field and 0-of-6 from three against a swarming Penn State man-to-man defense. The Lions jumped out to a 17-3 lead five minutes into the game. VMI eventually warmed up and went 10-of-22 from the arc the rest of the half as they cut the lead to one on two occasions.

Penn State clung to a 33-32 lead with 8:31 to play in the half after a pair of free throws by Chavis Holmes, but went on a 20-6 run over the next four minutes to build a 15-point lead. Walker swatted a VMI three-point attempt out of bounds and then drained back-to-back threes to ignite the back half of the run that was capped by a Claxton dunk for a 53-38 PSU lead. VMI twice got the margin under 10 before PSU scored the last five points of the half and went to the locker room with a 62-48 lead. The 62-points marked the second most ever scored in a half in the Jordan Center behind 64 posted against Bucknell in 1998.

Penn State would set the mark in second stanza as the Lions scored 67 points in the final 20 minutes to stay ahead of VMI?s 63. Penn State maintained a double-digit lead for nearly 12 minutes of the half until a Williams three cut the Lion lead to eight at 92-84 with 8:18 to play. A Cornley dunk answered and then Holmes got a lay-up on the other end for VMI. A Hassell dunk answered this time and VMI again responded with a lay-up, this one from Fred Robinson who was fouled and made the free throw to cut the lead to seven at 96-89.

Penn State went on an 18-4 run over the next three minutes getting a Hassell dunk, four lay-ups and a three from Morrissey along the way. A Cornley jumper capped the run that gave PSU a 21-point lead, 114-93, with 3:48 to play. Penn State kept the margin over 17 the rest of the way. A Maxwell Dubois jumper with 34 seconds to play capped PSU?s scoring in the game.

Penn State will open its 15th season of Big Ten play on Wednesday against Northwestern in the Jordan Center. That game is scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. tip and will be televised by ESPNU.

Geary Claxton became the 27th Nittany Lion to score 1,000 points on their career Saturday vs. VMI


UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; January 2, 2007 ? Penn State junior forward Geary Claxton (West Haven, Conn.) has been named the Big Ten Player of the Week for the second time on his career following his 31-point, 11-rebound performance in a 129-111 victory over VMI last Saturday.

With a slam on an alley-oop pass from Mike Walker with 1:55 remaining in the victory over VMI, Claxton became the 27th Nittany Lion to score 1,000 points on their career and the first to join the group since Gyasi Cline-Heard (1,058) in 2001. The jam was part of a career-high 31 points for Claxton on the night as he netted his Big Ten leading fourth double-double of the year and 13th of his career.

The Big Ten laurel was the second of his career as he was also honored on Nov. 15, 2004 ? also the last time a PSU player was honored as POW. It marks the fourth time a Penn State player has been so honored in coach Ed DeChellis? four seasons.

Penn State shattered a 52-year old school scoring record and a 41-year old Big Ten record for points in the victory over VMI in the Jordan Center. The point total smashed the previous PSU mark of 110 set vs. Colgate in 1954 and the Big Ten record of 128 scored by Michigan against Purdue in 1966. The 240 combined points obliterated the previous PSU mark of 209 set vs. Duke in 1965.

It was the Lions 19th 100-point game and first since a 105-103 victory over Siena in the 2000 NIT. Penn Stat was the fourth team to reach 100 points in the Big Ten this season. Penn State had a school record 36 assists, posted 12 dunks and shot 70 percent in the second half on its way to a BJC record 67-point half in the final 20 minutes. The Lions 45 field goals and 53 rebounds set BJC records and their 52 free throw attempts were just one off the school record. Penn State led 62-48 at halftime of the contest in which the teams combined to attempt 159 field goals.

Seven Penn State players scored in double-figures led by three scoring 20 points or more ? all career highs. Jamelle Cornley (25) and Brandon Hassell (20) joined Claxton with career highs and became the first trio to score 20 points in the same game since Joe Crispin (29), Dan Earl (22) and Calvin Booth (21) accomplished the feat in a 98-85 victory over Ohio State on Feb. 27, 1999.

Penn State opens Big Ten play Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. in the Jordan Center vs. Northwestern. The game will be televised on ESPNU and can be heard live on the Penn State Sports Network. Penn State swept Northwestern in three games last season and owns a 19-11 lead in the series.

Nittany Lions Scorch Northwestern, 83-57, in Big Ten Opener
Morrissey posts career-high 24 points; Lions shoot 64 percent from the floor

Mooch Jackson scored 11 points and dished out five assists in the win.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; January 3, 2007 ? Still feeling frisky from a school record 129-point outing in their last game, Penn State (10-4; 1-0 Big Ten) scorched the nets against Northwestern (10-4; 0-1 Big Ten) in its Big Ten opener Wednesday in the Bryce Jordan Center. The Nittany Lions shot a season-high 64 percent (32-50) from the floor and ran away with an 83-57 victory.

The 26-point win, Penn State?s first in a Big Ten season opener since 2004, marked the Nittany Lions' largest victory margin in Big Ten play since downing Northwestern by 33 points (82-49) in 2000. It was Penn State?s highest point production in the Big Ten since scoring 87 in a losing effort vs. Ohio State (93-87) in 2001 and its first 80-point game in Big Ten play since an 81-68 win over Purdue in 2002. Penn State had its best shooting night since posting a 64.8 percent mark vs. Lock Haven in December of 2004 and it?s best outing in Big Ten play since shooting 68.0 percent vs. Northwestern in 1998 ? Penn State?s best ever mark in Big Ten play. This against a Northwestern team that entered the night leading the Big Ten allowing opponents just 53.6 points per game.

?We made perimeter shots and it opened things up,? Penn State coach Ed DeChellis said. ?I thought we were pretty sharp offensively. Against the zones and match-ups it?s hard sometimes to get the ball inside, and I thought we were very, very sharp offensively.?

Penn State?s numbers sat at 69.6 percent for the game and 80.0 percent for the second half before DeChellis began pulling his starters and clearing his bench with just over three minutes to play in the game.

Sophomore Danny Morrissey (Cleveland, Ohio) led the charge for Penn State, scoring a career-high 24 points and equaling a career-best with six threes on the night. Morrissey hit 6-of-9 from behind the arc, part of a sizzling 10-of-17 (58.8 percent) effort from the arc for Penn State on the night. Geary Claxton (West Haven, Conn.) posted 15 points and six boards. Jamelle Cornley (Columbus, Ohio) and Mooch Jackson (Gaithersburg, Md.) each added 11 with Jackson adding a team-best five assists.

?I thought we got very good guard play tonight,? DeChellis said. ?I thought Mooch, Ben, and Danny really handled the ball well. I think those guys had like 15 assists and maybe four turnovers. I thought that was very important.?

Penn State tallied 22 assists against a season-low 10 turnovers and out-rebounded Northwestern 32-18 while holding the Wildcats to 39.6 percent (19-48) shooting on the night. The Nittany Lions held the Wildcats leading scorer Kevin Coble (13.5 ppg) scoreless and neutralized Northwestern?s motion offense with an effective zone. Northwestern was led by sophomore Craig Moore who scored 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting from the three-point line.

?For the most part we have played Northwestern zone,? DeChellis said. ?I?m not chasing them around. I?m not guarding all that stuff man-to-man. I just refuse. So, We?re just going to play them zone and guard the guys who can shoot and the chips fall were they may.?

Penn State took a 36-24 lead into halftime after shooting 61.5 percent and getting a big first 20 minutes from Morrissey. Starting his 10th game of the season, the 6-3 guard shot 3-of-5 from the three-point line and had 13 points in the first stanza. Northwestern stayed close by shooting 7-of-15 from three, getting all but one of their eight first half field goals from behind the arc. Northwestern?s first five field goals of the game all came from three-point range and they didn?t record their first two-point bucket until 6:18 left in the half.

The Lions held a slim 13-12 lead midway through the half after a three from Northwestern?s Vince Scott. Penn State then went on a 17-5 run to take a 30-17 lead with 2:26 left in the half. The run was sparked by back-to-back threes from Ben Luber and Morrissey. Morrissey, who had 11 of Penn State?s first 21 points, had another three in the run, Mike Walker added a trey, Cornley had two buckets and Brandon Hassell one.

Hassell fed Claxton with a nice pass along the baseline and the 6-5 junior finished to give Penn State a 32-21 lead. Penn State scored the last four points of the half, getting a nice jumper from Jackson and a lay-up in the closing seconds from Morrissey after he picked a Northwestern player's pocket at the top of the key as the Wildcats looked to set up a final play.

Penn State expanded the lead to 21 (49-28) five minutes into the second half when Claxton threw down one of several dunks on the night off an assist from Jackson. The Lions outscored the Wildcats 8-1 over the next three minutes, getting threes from Jackson and Luber and a pair of Cornley free throws to take a 28-point lead (57-29) with 11:53 to play.

Claxton pulled a defensive rebound and kicked ahead to Jackson who drove for a nice lay-up that brought the Penn State bench to its feet and pushed the margin to 30 (73-43) with 6:15 to play. The Lions held as much as a 34-point lead (80-46) when Jackson scored another lay-up with 3:58 to play; DeChellis cleared his bench shortly after.

Penn State will head to West Lafayette, Ind. to take on Purdue Saturday in a 12:15 tip. Penn State swept the Boilermakers in two games last season posting a 69-60 win at Purdue and a 75-54 victory in the Jordan Center.

The game can be heard live on GoPSUsports.com and the Penn State Sports Network and will be televised by ESPN Regional (check local listings).

Basketball Radio Analyst Dick Jerardi Honored For Print Journalism
Earns Media Eclipse Award for coverage of Barbaro injury

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa., January. 5, 2007 ? Penn State basketball radio analyst Dick Jerardi has been honored for his outstanding work as a sports writer at the Philadelphia Daily News. Jerardi, in his third season teaming with longtime play-by-play man Steve Jones to broadcast Nittany Lion basketball games, was named the Media Eclipse Award winner for writing in the news/commentary category for his horse racing coverage of Barbaro's injury in the Preakness and its aftermath.

The Eclipse Awards are the most prestigious in horse racing. They will be presented Jan. 22 at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Jerardi was cited for articles headlined "A Nightmare, Right from the Start," and "Maybe Step," published on May 22, and "In Barbaro's Corral," published on May 24.

"I wanted to give the readers the experience of what it was like at those crisis moments at Pimlico and New Bolton through my eyes," said Jerardi, a Daily News sports writer since 1985. "I had never been in a situation quite like this one before. It was one of the biggest stories I've every covered, and of course, in those long hours of Barbaro's surgery at New Bolton, you didn't know the outcome. My editors gave me a lot of leeway and I appreciated it very much."

Jerardi also noted surgeon Dr. Dean Richardson: "He was brilliant in his ability to explain veterinary medicine in layman's terms on deadline. He explained things as someone who was both 'player' and 'coach.' "

The Eclipse Awards are presented by the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, National Turf Writers Association (NTWA) and Daily Racing Form. Barbaro is a finalist for an Eclipse Award for 3-year-old male.
