Penn College started out with a nice run, thanks to a few three-pointers by Wyatt Decker and Ethan Kline. Lock Haven stormed back, turning the first half into a seesaw matchup until Penn College's Bryant House hit a three to send his team into the locker room with a six-point lead. Halftime killed that momentum, however, and Lock Haven started the second half with an 8-0 run. Penn College regrouped and, once again, the game went back and forth with neither team leading by more than two. "With four minutes left, Lock Haven hit its shots and Penn College suffered from the old saying, 'You live by the three and die by the three,'" said intramural assistant Jeremy R. Bottorf, who supplied the summary and photos. Lock Haven, which upped its lead to 10 with less than a minute left, went on to win, 48-37. Comprising the Penn College team were Decker, Kline, House, Allen Regan, Matthew Strayer, Colton Acorn, Stephen Armstrong, Jacob Singleton, Azeez Sulaimon and Matthew Myers. Kline led Penn College with 14 points, while Sulaimon chipped in with eight and Decker added seven. Regan and House each had three points, and Myers two.
