Leading the charge for the Nittany Lions were the dynamic duo of guards, Kanye Clary who led with a game high of 27 points, three assists and four rebounds and Adrian Baldwin Jr who scored 20 points, five assists and three rebounds. Forward Nick Kerns also had himself a double digit scoring night as he collected 15 points.
