Carr lifts Penn State over Nebraska in overtime

Penn State cornerback Grant Haley celebrates his interception during the first quarter at Beaver Stadium on Sept. 9 2017. The Nittany Lions beat Pitt

But trailing by as many as 16 points in the second half, the Huskers were able to rally back and send the game into overtime.

The overtime period went back-and-forth before the home team pulled away.

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.

Glynn Watson carried the load to open the game, scoring Nebraska's first seven points and making four of his first five shots from the field.

Penn State hosts Minnesota on Monday. Five minutes into the half, the Huskers earned points back to whittle the lead down. They made some huge plays down the stretch and in overtime. "I called a timeout and I said, 'Guys, one of two things is going to happen: one, we're going to get embarrassed, or two, we're going to decide to just play harder than these guys".

The Cornhuskers forced a shot-clock violation and a turnover on Penn State's next two possessions, but couldn't take advantage.

"Nebraska's Anton Gill nailed a three-pointer with 14 seconds left in the game to tie it for the sixth time at 74-74". He scored five points - 10.8 fewer than his average - and made 1 of 9 shots. Nebraska tied it again at 63 on another free throw. PSU took a 65-63 lead, but Watson's basket with 1:24 knotted the score at 65. He scored 19 of his 21 points in the second half, and Roby added seven of his 12 in that span.

Penn State led 33-24 at halftime and quickly pushed the lead to double-digits in the second half.

Tony Carr shot 5-21 during the game, but ended up winning the game with a hot hand in overtime - scoring on each of the last three possessions, including the game-winner with just seconds left to push the Nittany Lions to a 76-74 win. "But we didn't do enough with discipline and execution".

Miles said he couldn't offer an update yet on Tshimanga's status. Layups by Stevens, Bostick and Jamari Wheeler, who made his first career start against Nebraska, extended the lead back to 56-44, but the Huskers hung around. Nebraska entered the Bryce Jordan Center shooting just 43 percent from the floor and 36 percent from 3-point range for the season.

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

The Cornhuskers return home to host IL on Monday and MI on Thursday.

"He's just trying to figure some things out on his own", Miles said.

"We'll hopefully have a resolution soon".

Nebraska got a big game from the duo of Watson Jr. and Isaac Copeland.

"You can't just get blasted in the first half like that", Nebraska coach Tim Miles said. "But at the same time, I don't think it's much of a distraction for the players".

The Nittany Lions' four field goals in overtime were double what they produced in the final eight minutes of regulation against Nebraska's zone. The Huskers went on a 19-6 run, which Watson capped with a tying jumper with 1:25 to play. He's chipped in 10.8 points per game, too.

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.
