A back and forth first half witnessed Myron Jones of Penn State and Alabama’s James Bolden each knocking back a dozen points.
Alabama garnered three more rebounds (28-25) and closed the half-up, 40-34.
Penn State was staring at a deficit most of the second half but stayed resilient and eventually pulled ahead
Bolden (13 points) and Alex Reese (12 points) kept the Crimson Tide in the thick of things.
Penn State just had too much firepower and Curtis Jones Jr. finished with an 18 point 7 Rebound day. Myreon Jones remains hot and added 17 while player of the game, Lamar Stevens added 11 rebounds to go with 18 points to make the difference.
The question is simple, will Penn State come out of week ranked in the Top 25?
