Carr's jumper in OT lifts Penn St. past Nebraska

  • Indiana Hoosiers Penn State Nittany Lions NCAA Men's Basketball NCAA

It wasn't always pretty from Tony Carr on Friday night in Penn State's matchup with Nebraska, but the Nittany Lions' star point guard came up big when it mattered most.

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.

Watson got the Husker attack going early, scoring nine of Nebraska's first 11 points, including the first seven.

The loss drops NU to 12-7 overall and 3-3 in Big Ten Conference play. It was his eighth double-double of the season and 16th of his career.

Nebraska took a 68-65 lead on Isaiah Roby's 3-pointer with 3:36 left in the extra session, but Carr, who was 2-of-17 in regulation, tied it up on the subsequent possession with a 3-pointer of his own.

On top at the break, 33-24, Penn State picked up it where it left off to open the second half.

· Ohio State went 2-for-4 with the man-advantage while the Nittany Lions were 2-for-3 as they have now gone six straight games with at least one power-play goal.

Penn State had the biggest lead in the game with an advantage of 16 at one point.

But once again, no one else would step up to carry the load, and NU hit another cold stretch by missing six of its next seven shots and falling back behind by 13 points with less than nine minutes remaining.

· Sturtz also collected the 28th multi-point game of his career and his 10th this season after registering one goal and one assist on the night. He later knocked down a pull-up jump shot and hit a pair of free throws before he let the game-winning shot fly. A jumper by Watson with 1:27 left would tie it again at 65-65, and that score would hold into overtime. It would be Carr and the Nittany Lions would get the last laugh on the final possession, however.

Anton Gill's basket started an 8-0 Husker run that pulled Nebraska to within 47-39 with 14:24 after four straight Copeland points. Miles said. "Just so many different things eat at you when you lose a close one".

Penn State hosts Minnesota on Monday from the Bryce Jordan Center, while Nebraska returns home the same night to play IL. Lamar Stevens scored 26 points and Mike Watkins added 20 and grabbed 15 rebounds for the Nittany Lions (13-6, 3-3 Big Ten), who led by as many as 16 in the second half. Roby finished with 12 points, five coming in overtime, and Gill had 10.

The Huskers return home Monday night, as they take on the Illinois Fighting Illini.

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

Tshimanga did not travel with the Huskers to State College, Pa., and is rumored to be considering a mid-year transfer. He was joined in strong performances by both Jordy Tshimanga and Thomas Allen, with Tshimanga scoring 7 of his season-high 9 points in the second half. "It's an unfortunate situation". "I'm going to keep taking 'em as the season goes on". He's a great kid; his family are good people, so we're dealing with everything you could imagine to be dealing with right now. Nebraska had one last chance to tie or win the game, but Roby's shot was both off the mark and released after the final buzzer.

"My teammates and my coaches put that trust in me to take shots like that", Carr said. "It's probably more of a distraction for Kenya (Hunter) and I and the assistants".

Isaac Copeland, one of Nebraska's leading scorers in the contest, started the team's comeback. Copeland then blocked a shot from Carr and made a layup in transition while being fouled and an 8-0 run suddenly had the Huskers within eight points with 14 minutes left in the game.

His teammates and coaches encouraged him throughout the game.

After an 8-0 run by Minnesota to open the game, a Penn State timeout sparked the Lady Lions to make their next five field goals after starting 0-for-6 from the floor to get within three, 15-12, at the 4:39 mark.

It was far from the junior's best night, but with the game on the line, it's certainly a head-scratcher that NU didn't have arguably its best scorer on the court.
