After a good start to Sunday afternoon, Seth Lundy’s day was cut short due to an injury that left him on crutches. Lundy was hurt and Penn State won. The season record is now 8-3. Penn State won against Canisius by a decisive second-half victory at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sunday afternoon.
Head coach Micah Shrewsberry He did not have any information on Lundy’s status after the game but said that he was hopeful it was not too serious. Shrewsberry suggested that Lundy might not have been able to return to the Penn State bench if the injury is serious.
Penn State started the game, as it was to be expected, a little rusty from the week-long vacation they took after their win over Illinois. Canisius took a lead of 20-11 seven minutes into the match before Penn State found a rhythm. Lundy scored 10 points and grabbed six rebounds in just 13 minutes before sustaining an injury. Jalen Pickett The Nittany Lions moved in the right direction when Pickett took charge. Pickett highlighted the 17-8 run with eight of nine hits in four minutes to tie the game at 28/28.
The defense tightened up, as Canisius had a hard time hitting their shots while Penn State was in control. Canisius was finally beaten by Penn State in the second period with a quick outburst. Andrew Funk In the middle of a 22-2 run, Funk lit up the three point line to give Penn State a 64-38 lead six minutes into the second period. Funk finished the game with five three pointers.
This is the fourth consecutive season that Penn State has scored at minimum 90 points in one game. The program’s season-high score of 97 points on Sunday was a record.
The next home game for the Nittany Lions will be on Thursday night. Penn Strate will take on Quinnipiac at 8:30 p.m. on Big Ten Network.
