Penn State Vs. Iowa Final Score: Nittany Lions Down Hawkeyes, 69-64

Junior guard Tim Frazier put together a stat-stuff performance of team-best 18 points, three rebounds, four assists and four steals to propel the Penn St. Nittany Lions to a victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes, 69-64, in a Big Ten Conference men's basketball game at the Bryce Jordan Center at University Park, PA.

Frazier tallied four straight points to push a slim three-point lead for Penn State to seven, 60-53, with 5:05 remaining in the game, and help the Nittany Lions (12-15, 4-10 Big Ten) cement their second straight victory.

Senior guard Cammeron Woodyard scored 13 points, while freshman forward Jonathan Graham added 10 and six rebounds for Penn State.

Senior guard Matt Gatens netted a game-best 21 points for the Hawkeyes (13-13, 5-8), who trailed 38-24 at halftime but closed the gap to just three before Frazier's small spark.

Early on, the game was tied at 10, however, a 15-2 run helped the Nittany Lions earn a 25-12 advantage with 8:11 to go in the first half. Penn State used that run to take its commanding lead into the locker room.
