Recap: Providence vs. Penn State

Bayamon, PR (Sports Network) - Behind 19 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists from Tim Frazier, the Penn State Nittany Lions were able to outlast the Providence Friars, 55-52 in overtime, in a consolation match of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off at Coliseo Ruben Rodriquez.

Jermaine Marshall was the only other PSU (2-1) player to tally double figures in points with 13, but he shot only 4-of-18 from the floor.

Kadeem Batts recorded 17 points and 11 rebounds for Providence (2-2), but he too struggled mightily, shooting just 2-of-12 from the field. Josh Fortune and LaDontae Henton added 15 points and 11 points, respectively.
