Playing their fourth consecutive conference road game in 8 days to start PSUAC action has been a difficult task for the PSU DuBois team. PSUD closed out the weekend road trip with a game against Penn State Scranton. PSUD played very strong defense in the first half but struggled offensively as they went into the intermission with a 27-23 defecit. In the second half, the undermanned PSUD squad were unable to keep their defensive focus as Scranton exploded for 55 second half points. Scranton took home the 82-73 victory.
Khalil Hopson (Sharon, PA) lead PSUD with 28 points after being limited to 2 points in the first half due to foul trouble. Marshaun Hyman (Farrell, PA) and Kyle Mills (Bushkill, PA) rounded out the double figure scorers with 20 and 15 points, respectively. Austin Hawkins (Philadelphia, PA) had 7 rebounds in the losing cause.
PSUD returns home for a game against PSUAC rival Penn State New Kensington at 8pm on Wednesday 12/11/13.
