How It Happened
Penn State Harrisburg made it look easy in a 100-52 victory at North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) foe Penn College on Wednesday night, Jan. 15.
Donyae Baylor-Carroll's recent hot streak continued with a 29-point outing that included seven 3-pointers. Nate Curry recorded another double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Dylan Daniels had 12 points and eight boards. Chris Haynes added 11 points, Pedro Rodriguez tallied nine points and seven rebounds and Robby Bobeck netted eight off the bench.
Baylor-Carroll scored 10 of the team's first 16 points to put the Lions (7-6, 3-1 NEAC) ahead by 11 in the early going before Curry took over with the hot hand later in the half. The freshman knocked down four consecutive jumpers from beyond the arc to stretch the advantage to 34-18 at the 5:33 mark.
A Haynes 3-ball pushed the lead to 20 points less than three minutes later before Baylor-Carroll put an exclamation point on the first-half scoring with a jumper from 3-point range that made it 50-27 at the break.
There was no let up to start the second half, as the Blue & White put together a 16-0 run capped by back-to-back Baylor-Carroll 3-pointers that ballooned the lead to 33 with 14:42 left to play. A pair of free throws from Rodriguez extended the margin to 35 with 10 minutes remaining and a Daniels layup off a Josh Martin assist pushed the advantage to 40 at the 8:15 mark.
The visitors stretched their lead past the 50-point mark when Bobeck came away with a steal and laid one in on the other end with five minutes left and the defense allowed just seven more points the rest of the way.
