JOHNSTOWN — BASKETBALL

Injury takes out PSU point guard

STATE COLLEGE – Penn State point guard Tim Frazier will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured left Achilles tendon, a devastating blow for the rebuilding Big Ten program.

Frazier was injured about six minutes into the Nittany Lions’

85-60 loss Sunday to Akron at the Puerto Rico Tipoff.

Coach Patrick Chambers said Frazier underwent surgery Tuesday, with a recovery period of 6-12 months. The team plans to apply for a fifth year of eligibility for Frazier on a medical redshirt.

A preseason All-Big Ten selection, Frazier finished the year averaging 16.3 points over four games. The senior led the Big Ten last year in assists (6.2 per game), and also paced team in scoring (18.8 points) and steals (2.4).

Lady Cats drop home opener

Kaitlynn Fratz scored 18 of her 21 points in the second half to help Pitt-Johnstown erase a 15-point deficit, but Bluefield State hit a pair of free-throws with seven seconds remaining to defeat the Lady Cats 81-79 in their home opener.

Tiffany Moorer knocked down two free throws with seven seconds on the clock to break a 79-all tie and give Bluefield State the victory. Tasia Nolan had 26 points for Bluefield State.

Mount Aloysius nips Waynesburg

WAYNESBURG – Lauryn Colmer sank two free throws with seven seconds left to put Mount Aloysius in the lead, and the Mounties held off three last-second Waynesburg attempts in a 65-64 victory.

Lindsey Sammarco had 27 points and Becky Bard netted 19 for Mount Aloysius.

Mount Aloysius (2-1) made six

3-pointers and 15 free throws compared with Waynesburg’s two

3-pointers and 12 points from the line.

Mount men get victory at home

CRESSON – Mount Aloysius used a balanced scoring attack to defeat Penn State-New Kensington 75-52 in a non-conference match-up.

Every player on the Mount Aloysius roster made it into the scoring column, with Jeff Stem‘s 14 points leading the way. Dameon Turner, Tanner Thomas, and Demetrius Davis each added 10 points.
