How It Happened

Following a competitive first half, Penn State Harrisburg turned it on after the break and left no doubt in an 86-67 victory over Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) foe Frostburg State at the Capital Union Building on Wednesday night, Feb. 6.


Kahlil Williams recorded his second consecutive double-double with 17 points and 13 rebounds, while Chris Bing racked up a game-high 18 points. Donyae Baylor-Carroll showed off his shooting prowess to the tune of 14 points and Zegary Scott III made it to double digits with 10 tallies.


The Lions (13-9, 5-6 CAC) held a four-point lead at the break but quickly pushed their advantage to double digits for the first time early in the second half when Baylor-Carroll converted three free throws to make it 44-32 with 17:19 left to play.


FSU (10-12, 6-5 CAC) kept at it and eventually closed to within seven following an Edwin Cole 3-pointer a few minutes later but a decisive run by the Blue & White midway through the half proved too much for the visitors to overcome.


Leading by 10 with 13:47 remaining, Penn State Harrisburg put together a game-altering 15-4 run over a span of 3:27 that began with a Bing one-handed jam off a pretty find from Scott and ending with Baylor-Carroll knocking down a corner trey off an assist from Keenan Wise that ballooned the advantage to 21 points.


The Bobcats grabbed their only lead of the night at 7-5 following a Terry Kenner 3-ball four minutes into the contest. The Lions quickly took control and used a 14-8 outburst to pull ahead 21-13 following an offensive rebound and putback by Williams at the 7:37 mark.


The visitors clawed back into it, drawing even at 23-23 with 3:51 left until halftime. From there, the teams traded buckets and kept things close heading into the locker room.
