GLENSIDE, Pa. - Freshman Scott Fenton (Dickson City) tied his personal high of 24 points to lead the Pennsylvania College of Technology men's basketball team as it lost 84-41 to Arcadia University Monday night. The Wildcats were down several starters due to injury and fell behind in the first half 45-13.
