Men's Basketball Drops Road Game at PSU Wilkes Barre, 73-61

WILKES BARRE, PA (Jan. 26, 2016) - Despite a resilient 2nd half comeback, the Penn State Lehigh Valley men's basketball team came up short to host Penn State Wilkes Barre, 73-61, tuesday night.

Oyeniyi lead Lehigh Valley with 16 points.  Junior Jordan Young contributed 14 points and sophomore Sekou Mangassabou chipped in with 9 points.
