Penn State Harrisburg played one of its most entertaining gameS of the young season against Southern Vermont in the opening game of the Rotary of Frederick Holiday Classic in Frederick, Md.

In a game that saw seven ties, seven lead changes and two overtimes, the Lions came up agonizingly short in their effort to make it to the tourney’s championship game, falling 88-84 on Saturday, Dec. 21.

In defeat, however, Penn State Harrisburg (5-5) showed tremendous character and heart. The Lions had plenty of chances to give up in the second half, but they refused.

The Lions bounced back to beat Bryn Atheryn, 80-62 in the consolation game on Sunday, Dec. 22.
