Jonny Sutton (York, Pennsylvania / Dallastown Area High School) hit two 3-pointers to open the game and Penn State York never trailed, beating Penn State DuBois 76–63 at home on Saturday, Dec. 2 for its seventh straight win.
 
York controlled the game from tip-off and took a 14-point lead into the half. DuBois' Tristan Pierce, who led all scorers with 23 points, narrowed the gap to just 4 points with a little under 5 minutes to play, but York would always find an answer and eventually pulled away for the win.
 
Penn State York got 30 points from its bench, led by AJ Richardson (Reisterstown, Maryland / Dulaney High School) who poured in 15 points on 6 of 8 shooting, including 3 of 4 from distance. Richardson also pulled down 9 rebounds in his 26 minutes on the floor. Dominic Webb (Edgewood, Maryland / Harford Technical High School) added 11 points in 24 minutes off the bench.
 
Larry Rascoe (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania / Susquehanna Township High School) again ran the Penn State York offense, contributing 11 points and 8 assists. On the day, York would assist on 21 of its baskets, compared to only 4 for DuBois.
 
With the win, Penn State York improves to 7–1 (4–0, PSUAC) and turns its attention to an away game at an improved Penn State Brandywine team Tuesday, Dec. 5.
