Tim Frazier Goes Down With Lower Leg Injury

Tim Frazier went down just 6 minutes into the Nittany Lions' contest with the Akron Zips on Sunday with an apparent ankle injury. He hobbled gingerly off the floor then went back into the lockerroom. He is out for the rest of the game, but the long-term diagnosis seems positive.

Dick Jerardi on the PSU radio broadcast called it a sprained left ankle, but clarified that they have not received an official diagnosis from PSU trainers. The ESPN broadcast team reported on the feed that PSU is calling it an achilles injury.

Whether he'll be ready for Bucknell on Black Friday remains highly questionable.

PSU is winning 36-32 over the Zips as DJ Newbill is having a coming out party in Frazier's absence (14 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and 0 turnovers so far).

PSU Survives Against Providence, 55-52 in OT

Full recap of what the scoreboard called a win coming tomorrow. For now, the Lions were able to simply able to get by a very crippled Providence club that had no true ball-handler whatsoever. After finishing regulation tied at 43, PSU 'got hot' in overtime for a 55-52 dub. Tim Frazier unsurprisingly led the way with 19 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists.

With the win, Penn State moves on to the 5th place game which will be Sunday at 1:30pm on ESPNU. They will face one of the MAC's best teams, the Akron Zips. Stay tuned for more PSU coverage at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off over the weekend.

Providence Guard Likely Out Tonight

The hits keep coming for the Providence basketball team. Their other star guard, Bryce Cotton, is being reported as doubtful to play tonight against PSU according to the Providence Journal. He turned his ankle in last night's contest against UMass, but stayed in the game. The short turnaround however has seen his injury swell and he probably won't go tonight. His absence would leave Ed Cooley's roster with just 5 active scholarship players.

It certainly won't reflect well on PSU if they can't beat a team that has seen its roster deplete over the last week.
