Penn State men's basketball receives votes in latest AP Poll

Unfortunately for MSU, Penn State's Andrew Sturtz scored with 17.7 seconds to play in the period to regain the lead for the Nittany Lions.

The Boilermakers missed 7 of 9 3-pointers in the opening half, as they fell behind by as many as nine points, and connected on just 11 of 26 shots overall.

A win over the Boilermakers would have certainly put Penn State on the right side of the tournament bubble, but the Nittany Lions came up just short of a marquee road victory.

Three Nittany Lions scored in double figures with sophomore guard Tony Carr taking the lead with 19 points, Garner adding 17 with 11 coming in the second half, and Lamar Stevens with 11 on the night.

Points in the paint were controlled by Penn State, with 24 points, compared to Purdue's 20.

Although the Nittany Lions' offense went completely cold, Purdue did not run away with the game due to a spectacular effort by Penn State's defense.

Ultimately, it was the turnovers and missed free throws that did Penn State in late in the contest.

Ryan Cline's 3-pointer with 5:31 remaining gave Purdue a 61-58 lead, and the Boilermakers never trailed the rest of the way.

Chambers has talked to his players about being an "all-star" in their role, and he's seen the bench provide production in the past six games.

Byrns and Alice were found shortly before 6 p.m.at a Holiday Inn Express and Suites near Macon, Georgia, deputies said. Neighbors say Byrns lives there with his mom and dad. "We don't want this situation to repeat itself", Demings said.

The Nittany Lions will host No.17 MI on Wednesday night as Penn State looks to sneak into the NCAA Tournament. The Nittany Lions led 36-32 at halftime before Carsen Edwards and Mathias led the Boilermakers on a 14-4 run in the second half.

He had only hit a pair of 3-point shots in the last eight games, but he drained two critical ones in the second half Sunday.

"We're starting where they're ending", Poole said.

Eifert finished the game with just six points and four rebounds, but his play was effective and timely.

Purdue was still able to grind out a win over Penn State Sunday with Edwards on the bench; but in some ways, the senior's absence was still felt on the floor.

Penn State returns home to close out the regular season with a weekend series against No. 10 Minnesota next Friday and Saturday.

Ohio State (22-7, 13-3) has two regular-season games remaining.

Carr is averaging a team-high 19.6 points per game and is shooting 42.1 percent from the field.

Purdue: The Boilermakers are at IL on Thursday.
