Penn State basketball: Nittany Lions win Euro tour opener

Penn State began its European tour with a decisive 110-64 victory over Okapi Aalstar juniors on Monday.

Graham Woodward led seven Nittany Lions in double figures with 18 points while guard Tim Frazier returned to competition by scoring 10 points. Penn State also got 15 points from Brandon Taylor, 14 from Ross Travis, 13 from Allen Roberts, 11 from D.J. Newbill and 10 from Julian Moore.

“Our guys are really sharing the ball,” head coach Patrick Chambers said. “They’re looking up the floor so we’re getting easy ones. Unlike years past, we’re making extra passes here and there, which is exciting. We might be passing up a good shot for a great shot, and that gets them all pumped up. You saw the passion and the energy, and we have to keep that going.”
