But a 17-foot jumper from guard Tony Carr with 2.7 seconds left gave Penn State a 76-74 victory.

Lamar Stevens paced Penn State with a game-high 26 points, while Mike Watkins posted 20 points and 15 rebounds.

Nebraska made up a 16-point deficit in the second half Friday night at Penn State to force overtime.

"Tony had the guts to come out and hit some big shots for us when he didn't have the best shooting night", Chambers said. The hybrid forward entered the game averaging 22 points over the last three.

Taking a 33-24 lead at the half, the Nittany Lions opened the second period with six straight points.

Nebraska led 15-12, but the Nittany Lions went on an 8-1 spurt, keyed by five points from Lamar Stevens, to build a 20-16 lead with 8:15 left in the first half.

"Tough game and a disappointing loss", coach Tim Miles said on his radio show. "We have to be more prepared to battle with a guy who's a warrior like that because he just attacks the rim".

Nebraska's Glynn Watson Jr. scored 21 points, including a step-back, mid-range jumper that tied the score 65-65 with just over a minute to play in regulation. Shep Garner knocked down an 3-pointer from the corner off of a behind-the-back pass from Carr to give the Nittany Lions a 42-26 lead two minutes into the second half.

But the Huskers fought back from there and switched to a press look to slow Penn State's offense. After a Husker miss, Carr hit a pair of three throws to extend the lead to 74-71 with 23.6 seconds left, only to see Anton Gill tie it up with a 3-pointer from the wing with 13.3 seconds left, setting up the final score for the Nittany Lions. They made some huge plays down the stretch and in overtime.

Then Miles was asked if Tshimanga's situation had been a distraction to Nebraska's players as they try to get ready for an important Big Ten road game. Runs like that could come more often if they shoot better.

The Cornhuskers' reserves outscored Penn State's bench 27-7, but couldn't keep up with the Nittany Lions on the backboards and were outrebounded 48-36.

After continuous, smooth and controlled passing across the ice from Penn State's offense, forward Brooke Madsen scored at the end of the second period, her fourth goal of the season, which gave Penn State a 2-0 lead. Reaves leads the team and is 15th nationally with 2.47 steals per game.

Nebraska (12-7, 3-3) played without starting center Jordy Tshimanga, who stayed in Lincoln and is considering a transfer. Multiple outlets reported Tshimanga's frustration with the way his season has unfolded.

Nebraska (12-7, 3-3 Big Ten) had one last attempt, but Roby was unable to get off a half court attempt for the game victor.

Miles said he couldn't offer an update yet on Tshimanga's status.

"I talked to some of the coaches", he said.

Nebraska, which could have been alone in fourth place in the Big Ten with a victory, plays IL at home Monday.

But the Huskers would hit a cold streak midway through the first half, going scoreless for almost four minutes to allow Penn State to go on a 9-1 run and jump out to a 21-16 lead.
