(Thursday, March 6th)

Final Score: Penn State 59, Northwestern 32

Evanston, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Tim Frazier tallied 11 points, seven assists and five rebounds to help the Penn State Nittany Lions to a 59-32 victory over the Northwestern Wildcats in a Big Ten Conference tilt at Welsh- Ryan Arena.

D.J. Newbill scored a team-high 12 points for the Nittany Lions (15-15, 6-11 Big Ten) as they notched their second win in three games. Brandon Taylor added 11 points and Ross Travis grabbed 10 rebounds.

Alex Olah paced Northwestern (12-18, 5-12) with 14 points. Drew Crawford finished with just six points on 2-of-9 shooting from the floor, while Tre Demps made only one of his 10 field goal tries for five points. The loss was the seventh loss in a row for the Wildcats.

Olah gave the hosts a 2-0 lead with a made layup just over a minute after the opening tip, but Frazier scored the next four points to give PSU a lead it would not relinquish the rest of the way. The Nittany Lions outscored Northwestern, 18-4, in the paint in the opening period en route to a 32-15 lead at the intermission.
