STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Jermaine Marshall scored 18 points and two other Penn State players scored in double figures in a 58-47 win over Pennsylvania 58-47 on Saturday.
Marshall was fouled hard by Jamal Lewis on a breakaway with just under two minutes remaining. Lewis was ejected from the game after receiving a flagrant foul, and Marshall hit both free throws to give Penn State a 54-44 lead.
The Nittany Lions (4-3) didn't look back from there, outscoring the Quakers 9-3 during the stretch.
Penn (2-6) never led in the second half, but kept Penn State's lead in the single digits for much of the half. A pair Dau Jok free throws at the 7:26 mark cut the Nittany Lions' lead to four.
Tony Hicks led the Quakers with 10 points on 4 of 10 shooting. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for Penn.
