Ball security, a bothersome subject for Penn State New Kensington in the Lions' season-opening win, became a point of pride Tuesday during a nonconference game at Division II Edinboro.

Unfortunately for PSNK, the Fighting Scots fared quite well without forcing turnovers.

Able to dominate the rebounding margin, Edinboro (4-1) topped PSNK, 101-65. PSNK (1-1) finished with just six turnovers, while the Fighting Scots had 15. But Edinboro grabbed 67 rebounds, including 22 from the offensive glass. The Lions finished with 32 rebounds.

Sophomore guard Lou Payne, a transfer from Waynesburg, provided PSNK's most efficient performance of the night, as he made all three of his attempts from the field — two 2's and a 3-pointer — and both of his free throws to finish with nine points. He also had four assists and did not turn over the ball.

Tim Jones sank four 3-pointers as part of a team-high 14-point night for PSNK. Matt Sutton added 11 points and four rebounds, while Dom Strapac made three 3-pointers.

Johnathan Logan led Edinboro with 21 points, all of which came from 3-pointers — he was 7 for 10 from beyond the arc. Five players finished with double-figure point totals for the Fighting Scots, and 6-foot-7 forward Bobby Davis led the effort on the boards with 16 rebounds.

Edinboro's height advantage also was reflected in the shooting percentages, as the Fighting Scots made 51 percent of their attempts from the field, and PSNK sank just 30 percent.

PSNK will continue its nonconference slate at 3 p.m. Saturday, when it will play Carnegie Mellon, which is hosting the DoubleTree Invitational.
