Carr helps Nittany Lions earn season-opening win

UNIVERSITY PARK -- Tony Carr set a new carer-high in scoring with 33 points in Friday night's 86-75 win over the Campbell Fighting Camels.

Despite cutting the once 17-point lead to five points with one minute remaining, the Fighting Camels were unsuccessful in keeping up with the Nittany Lions.

Carr, who said he needed to develop a “scoring mentality” in the second half after Lamar Stevens fouled out, did just that.

“I just tried to make the best plays for my team, whether that is shooting or passing, or diving on the floor,” Carr said.

Aside form a with a career-high night in scoring from Carr, the sophomore from North North Philadelphia added nine rebounds to go along with seven assists.

Head coach of the Nittany Lions, Patrick Chambers, thought Carr’s offensive performance  placed the  the team in a position to be victorious in the game.

“He was not going to let us lose this game, he was going to come out and compete, and he did that,” Chambers said.

Penn State will have a quick turnaround, hosting Farleigh Dickinson in two days at the Bryce Jordan Center.
