STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Tim Frazier scored 20 points, Trey Lewis added nine and Penn State defeated Radford 62-46 on Monday night.

The Nittany Lions (2-0) used a 14-0 run midway through the first half to gain control.

Up nine at the break, Penn State hit three straight 3-pointers to begin the second half. The Nittany Lions used that momentum to shoot 52 percent (13 of 25) in the second half after shooting just 11 of 28 (39 percent) in the first.

Frazier, Penn State's lone returning starter, also tallied 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals.

Jareal Smith led Radford (2-1) with 16 points. Smith scored the Highlanders' first 11 points over the first 5:30, but shot 2 of 10 after that.

In the wake of the child sex abuse scandal that rocked the school last week, Penn State's coaching staff wore blue sneakers to honor victims of child abuse.
