In an extramural basketball game with Lycoming College on Wednesday, Penn College came ready to play … but came up short. Lycoming was hot from the start, missing very few shots, but Penn College weathered the storm and took the lead midway through the first half. Lycoming battled back, as well, and the half ended with Penn College up 30-28. Lycoming used halftime to regroup and reclaimed the lead in a 12-4 run. Penn College clawed back and the game once again was a classic seesaw matchup, but a persistent Lycoming edged its way to a double-digit lead. That’s when Nathaniel Brown started hitting 3-pointers and, with one minute left, Lycoming’s edge was pared to two: 64-62.  Penn College started fouling and stopped scoring, and Lycoming made its free throws to win the game, 70-66. Brown was the college’s leading scorer with 27 points. James Boylan added 18, Rob Beckett chipped in 12, Mike Cliggett added seven points and Aaron Workman had two. Nate Jeffries and Rich DeJesus didn’t score, but had numerous assists and rebounds for Penn College. The next extramural basketball will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, when Penn College hosts Lock Haven University.
