Schuylkill improves PSUAC record to 3-5 with victory over Penn State Lehigh Valley. In a very sloppy first half, marked by turnovers and poor shooting,  Lehigh Valley shot 8-31 (25%), Schuylkill matched them only shooting 29% (11-37). Patrick Killian (Junior/ Blue Mountain) led the Lions in the half with 11 of his team high 17 points on their way to 28-22 halftime advantage.
