Here is the latest Pennsylvania sports news from The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet each had 23 points and the Toronto Raptors beat the Philadelphia 76ers 110-103 for their fourth straight victory. Chris Boucher scored 11 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter for Toronto, hitting three 3-pointers as the Raptors opened the period on a 15-8 surge to take the lead for good. Joel Embiid, coming off a 50-point outburst against Chicago on Friday night, had 25 points and 17 rebounds for the 76ers, who lost their fourth consecutive road game. Embiid made only six of 20 shots from the field. Ben Simmons led Philadelphia with 28 points and nine rebounds.

STATELINE, Nev. (AP) — David Pastrnak had a hat trick and the Boston Bruins took control with three second-period goals in a span of 1:39 to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 7-3 in an outdoor game on the shore of Lake Tahoe. After a delay-filled opening game of the weekend between Colorado and Vegas because of bright sun that made for poor ice conditions, the game Sunday went off with fewer hitches. The Bruins’ high level of play matched the picturesque setting with the lake and snow-covered mountains in the background. It was Pastrnak’s second hat trick in three games against the Flyers this season. Boston is 5-0 versus Philadelphia this year.

It was the fourth consecutive win for Iowa. Izaiah Brockington and Myreon Jones each had 11 points to lead Penn State.
