Penn State Basketball: Nittany Lions Look To Make It Four Straight Tuesday Night

by on November 26, 2013 3:30 PM

Having scored 79 or more points in four straight games, the Nittany Lions will look to make it four straight wins as Penn State takes on Monmouth, Tuesday night at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Penn State scored a season high 93 points in a defeat of Longwood on Sunday afternoon and has put together an impressive offensive performance in the early stages of the season.

The Nittany Lions have four players averaging in double figures after five games, led by D.J. Newbill (18.6) and Tim Frazier (18.2). Both are ranked in the Top 5 in the Big Ten, making Penn State the only school with two players ranked that highly.

Monmouth enters the game 1-3 on the year after losing to St. John's 65-54 on Friday.

“It’s not just one or two guys, all five guys come to play every day and that’s the beauty of our team,” Newbill said following Sunday's win. “If I’m not on it, BT [Brandon Taylor] is on it. If he’s not, Tim [Frazier] is, or someone coming off of the bench. Our team can adapt and we can really pick up.”

Penn State will play two games on the road this coming weekend, both at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York as part of the Barclays Center Classic. If the Nittany Lions can continue strong play, it will only continue to build they hype as Penn State travels next week to take on Pittsburgh in their leg of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

Tip is set for 6:00 PM for Tuesday night's contest against Monmouth.
