PSNK men’s basketball starts cold, falls at CMU invite

The Penn State New Kensington men’s basketball team couldn’t rebound from a poor first-half performance and fell to Carnegie Mellon, 81-59, on Saturday in the first round of the Carnegie Mellon/DoubleTree Invitational at CMU’s Skibo Gymnasium.

PSNK (1-2) shot 18 percent (6 for 33) in the opening 20 minutes and trailed 37-22 at the break.

Freshman guard Dorian Broadwater led PSNK with 17 points and nine rebounds. Senior Shaquille Hager and sophomore Jordan Williams both scored 15 for the Lions. Carnegie Mellon (6-0) shot 45 percent for the game and its bench outscored PSNK’s, 38-15.

The tournament finishes Sunday. Case Western Reserve will play PSNK at 1 p.m., followed by CMU-Penn State Beaver at 3 p.m.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
