March Madness Scores: Temple Leads Penn State 35-33 At Halftime

The Temple Owls and Penn St. Nittany Lions are locked in a tight game at the half, as Temple leads 35-33. Juan Gonzalez leads the Owls with 17 points and 3 assists while Rahlir Jefferson has contributed 7 points and 4 rebounds. Two of the slower paced teams in the country have managed to put up a decent total at halftime.

Penn St. scored 36 points in their game against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Tournament and is dangerously close to eclipsing that mark already. Talor Battle leads a balanced attack for the Nittany Lions with 13 points and 3 of 5 on 3-pointers. Tim Frazier and Jeff Brooks have contributed 8 and 6 points respectively. 

Penn State led by as much as 9 points, but the Owls managed to battle back to tie the game, and then take the lead going into the break. Battle and Gonzalez look to carry their teams to a second round victory in what is sure to be a close finish.
