WASHINGTON -- Penn States youth movement is starting to pay dividends. JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey .Redshirt freshman Mike Watkins scored a career-high 20 points and added eight rebounds and four blocks to lead the Nittany Lions to a 74-68 victory at George Washington on Saturday.Fellow freshman Lamar Stevens had 18 points for Penn State (4-3), which erased a nine-point halftime deficit. Freshman Tony Carr had 12 points.Were a little bit on the roller-coaster ride, but I felt like they were prepared and ready to play tonight, Penn State coach Pat Chambers said. I havent been real happy with the way theyve been playing, but their focus was different and their approach was different and we really saw that in the second half.George Washington committed 15 turnovers, leading to 14 Penn State points. It also struggled from the perimeter, shooting 5 of 24 on its 3-point attempts.The Colonials (3-3) played without junior guard Yuta Watanabe, who sat out with a lower leg injury suffered in practice. Watanabes 13.4 points per game rank second on the team.I dont think its anything long-term, hopefully, but we cant use that as an excuse and use that as a crutch, George Washington interim coach Maurice Joseph said.Senior forward Tyler Cavanaugh had 15 points, all in the second half, for George Washington. Cavanaugh, who averages 18.8 points, picked up two fouls and was limited to eight minutes in the first half.The Nittany Lions have won two in a row since dropping back-to-back games to Duke and Cincinnati in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic. Penn State shot 50 percent in the second half while outrebounding the Colonials 21-16 after the break.We picked it up the last 20 minutes, which was great to see, Chambers said. We saw glimpses of who we can be.BIG PICTUREPenn State: The Nittany Lions climbed above .500 with a victory in their first true road game of the season while avenging a 76-66 loss at George Washington last season.George Washington: After a promising start, the Colonials have dropped three in a row after falling to Georgia and UAB in the CBE Classic earlier in the week.STAT OF THE NIGHTGeorge Washingtons 27-game nonconference home winning streak ended with the loss. The Colonials previous nonleague setback at Smith Center was a 65-62 loss to Kansas State on Dec. 8, 2012.TURNING POINTPenn State opened the second half on a 15-2 run, taking the lead for good on junior Payton Banks 3-pointer with 15:52 to play.INJURIESPenn State sophomore Davis Zemgulis suffered a sprained ankle late in the first half and did not return. Thats going to hurt us because hes been giving us really quality minutes, Chambers said. He made another 3 tonight and its just a matter of time for him to break out. Zemgulis has played in every game this season.UP NEXTPenn State plays host to Georgia Tech on Tuesday in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. PLAYER RATINGS FOR THE BLUES FOR STATE OF ORIGIN III:1. JAMES TEDESCO - Solid on his long-awaited debut. Ran for over 200m and made a great break to set up winning try. 7.52. BLAKE FERGUSON - Was full of energy early but still made some poor decisions including an error that gave Queensland the chance to open the scoring. 5.53. MICHAEL JENNINGS - Another who gave it plenty without making much impact. Then scored a match-winner and all was forgiven. 74. JOSH DUGAN - Lots of defensive work but didnt trouble the Maroons line too much. Injured jaw and failed to finish match. 65. JOSH MANSOUR - Not a game for outside backs. Struggled to get involved then a slip nearly cost the Blues the match. 4.514. MATT MOYLAN - Thrust into unfamiliar five-eighth position. Tried hard and did some good things. Questionable defence and failed to stop Gavin Coopers try. 5.57. JAMES MALONEY - An honest footballer who had another solid game and was one of the Blues best this series. 7.58. AARON WOODS - Got through a mountain of work as always. If this bloke isnt NSWs next Origin captain then who else is? 89. ROBBIE FARAH - Plenty of tackles as always. Will it be the veteeran hookers last Origin? 7. T. J. Watt Steelers Jersey. 510. PAUL GALLEN (c) - A winning end to his Origin career capped by a conversion of Jennings match-sealing try. Walks away with head held high. 811. WADE GRAHAM - Decent start to Origin career but four missed tackles is a concern. 612. JOSH JACKSON - Solid as he has been throughout his Origin career but made a couple of errors at crucial times in second half. 5.513. TYSON FRIZELL - Scored his second try in his second Origin match and looks a real find for the Blues. 7INTERCHANGE:6. JACK BIRD - Played most of the second half, especially with Dugan injured but apart from one attack on Queenslands tryline didnt show much. 5.515. JAMES TAMOU - Did OK off the bench but his game really lacks the impact that made him such a damaging player two seasons ago. 616. DAVID KLEMMER - Made for Origin. Claimed over 100 metres off the bench. Damaging. 7.517. ANDREW FIFITA - Scored a try and then had a brainsnap to get sent to the sin bin in the second half. Sums up his Origin career really. 6.5 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
