In State College, Lamar Stevens posted 25 points and seven rebounds to lead Penn State to a 70-57 win over Montana. The Nittany Lions’ third win of the season came in their Progressive Legends Classic opener.
Josh Reaves and Shep Garner each scored 12 points for Penn State, which shot 50 percent from the field (25-of-50), including 6-of-12 from 3-point territory.
Montana, which was coming off a win at Pittsburgh two days earlier, was led by Ahmaad Rorie, who had 16 points. Michael Oguine had 15 points and seven rebounds and Jamar Okoh registered 11 points and six boards.
In Pittsburgh, five Panthers scored in double figures as Pitt earned its first win of the season, 70-62, over UCSB.
Jonathan Milligan and Jared Wilson-Frame led the balanced attack with 14 points apiece with Wilson-Frame also hauling down six rebounds. Ryan Luther tallied a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds, Parker Stewart scored 12 points, and Shamiel Stevenson added 11 points and six rebounds.
The Panthers won the game at the foul line, going 21-of-25 against just 10-of-22 for the Gauchos.
UCSB was led by the 22-point, eight-rebound effort of Leland King. Max Heideggar scored 13 points and Gabe Vincent and Jalen Canty had 10 points each with Canty also recording 11 rebounds.
UCSB led for much of the affair, taking a 3-2 lead on a 3-pointer by Heideggar 31 seconds into the game. Pitt did not take the lead for good until Luther’s tip-in with 2:37 play put the Panthers up 58-57.
The Progressive Legends Classic continues on Thursday when Oklahoma State hosts Oral Roberts. On Friday, UCSB continues in the Legends Classic with a game at No. 16 Texas A&M.
