Wednesday night, the Nittany Lions won their third-straight game in blowout fashion, downing No. 17 Maryland 78-61 in State College. It was also Penn State’s fourth win in five games and the second time it has knocked off a ranked opponent in the last two weeks.
Three Nittany Lions reached double figures in the win, led by Lamar Stevens who scored 24 points. Myles Dread added 17 points and Myreon Jones pitched in with 10 points off the bench.
Maryland struggled from the three-point line, making just one of its 17 attempts for the contest. The Terrapins also struggled to get to the free throw line, making just 11 trips.
