Penn State beats Purdue 79-68
PENN ST 79, PURDUE 68

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- D.J. Newbill, Tim Frazier and Brandon
Taylor combined for 52 points as Penn State defeated Purdue
79-68 on Sunday for its third straight victory.

The Nittany Lions (12-10, 3-6 Big Ten) got 19 points from
Newbill, 18 from Frazier and 15 from Taylor.

Taylor scored nine points down the stretch, enough to keep
Purdue at arm's length.

Despite committing some late turnovers that allowed the
Boilermakers to remain in the hunt, Penn State went 11 for 12
from the free-throw line in the final 1:07. The Boilermakers
missed shots underneath the basket and were forced to foul.

Purdue (13-9, 3-6), which has lost four straight games since
defeating Penn State 65-64 on Jan. 18, was paced by 18 points
from A.J. Hammons and 12 from Ronnie Johnson.

Penn State, which started conference play with a six-game losing
streak, recorded its first three-game conference winning streak
since the 2008-09 season.

Taylor also pulled down eight rebounds for the Lions and Frazier
had seven as Penn State controlled the boards by a 40-36 count.

The Boilermakers pulled to within 34-29 at the half, then
started the second half by drawing the third foul each of Penn
State's Frazier, Taylor and Donovon Jack.

But the Lions' balanced scoring continued as John Johnson sank a
pair of free throws, Taylor popped a long 3-pointer and Frazier
completed a coast-to-coast drive for a 10-point advantage at
51-41.

Purdue's Hammons and Errick Peck answered with eight straight
points to pull within two, but Penn State recovered when Frazier
sank two foul shots, Newbill drove uncontested for a layup and
Johnson scored on a nifty reverse layup to build back to an
eight-point lead.

Penn State used a 21-4 run in the first half to rally from a
14-7 deficit to a 28-18 lead.
