His team was playing for the first time in eight days, so Penn State coach Patrick Chambers set one goal Sunday: Play harder than New Hampshire.

"I think we did that," Chambers said after the Penn State men limited New Hampshire to 22.6 percent shooting during a 72-45 win in State College, Pa., that preceded the women's rout of the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

Jermaine Marshall scored 15 points and Sasa Borovnjak 11 for Penn State (7-4), which used a 32-5 first-half run to open a commanding, 34-8 lead against the Wildcats (4-7).

The Nittany Lions have won three consecutive games and are 6-1 at home.

Pittsburgh 59, Kennesaw State 43 - Talib Zanna led the host Panthers (12-1) in scoring for the second game in a row with 12 points and nine rebounds in the win over the Owls (1-11).

Sean McGonagill scored 20 points to lead Brown (3-6).


Penn State 82, NJIT 37 - Former Germantown Academy standout Maggie Lucas scored 21 points, and Alex Bentley made eight steals - tying her career high - to lead the No. 11 Nittany Lions to victory in the men's-women's doubleheader in State College.

Lucas moved into 15th place on Penn State's all-time scoring list with 1,445 points, passing Jen Bednarek. She also passed Lisa Shepherd for second place all-time in three-point field goals made with 234.
