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

Despite that quick start for Penn State, the Cornhuskers hovered around a 10-point deficit for the majority of the second half, but a run just before the final media timeout took a Penn State lead that was once 16 points down to a single-possession game.

While Nebraska's ability to fight back and send the game into extra time was admirable, it didn't lessen the sting one bit for head coach Tim Miles and his team.

The box score won't be the prettiest for Carr, but he did tally 17 points - including those six points in the final 70 seconds that mattered most.

Nebraska hasn't won at Penn State since January 19, 2013.

"Tony is a terrific player", Miles said.

Penn State led 33-24 at halftime and quickly pushed the lead to double-digits in the second half. Tshimanga had nine points and six rebounds against Wisconsin in Nebraska's 63-59 win on Tuesday.

Nebraska had a chance to win at the end of regulation, but guard Glynn Watson's off-balance 3-pointer rimmed away. The Cornhuskers tied the game in the waning minutes at 65, eventually sending the game to overtime after both teams put together a string of painful offensive possessions. He added another free throw one possession later to get within 61-60 with three minutes on the clock.

With the game tied 74-74 after Nebraska's Anton Gill drilled a 3-pointer with 14 seconds left, Carr brought down the ball down the floor and attacked the 1-3-1 zone.

Shep Garner made a 3-pointer to give Penn State its largest lead at 42-26 just over two minutes into the second half. But Carr dribbled to the left elbow, before pulling up and hitting the winning jumper for the Nittany Lions.

"For as many good things as we did, we did just enough to lose". "It's just that our offense got worse as the thing went on".

Watson Jr. and Copeland led the Huskers with 21 points apiece. Nebraska entered the Bryce Jordan Center shooting just 43 percent from the floor and 36 percent from 3-point range for the season.

Penn State's home arena, the Bryce Jordan Center, holds over 15,000 people, but the Nittany Lions only average 5,633 spectators per home game, which ranks 12th in the Big Ten.

Star guard and leading scorer Tony Carr struggled for much of the night.

Nebraska, which could have been alone in fourth place in the Big Ten with a victory, plays IL at home Monday. "My last game-winner didn't go". "It's an unfortunate situation". "I'm going to keep taking 'em as the season goes on".

Carr didn't have the best game from the field, but was clutch down the stretch in overtime.

Trailing by 16 points with 16:28 remaining, Nebraska (12-7, 3-3) rallied to force overtime and took the lead before falling to Penn State on a last-second shot, 76-74. With potentially even less low-post depth going forward without Tshimanga, look for Nebraska to use more zone than ever. 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. Stevens, who has finished in double figures in each of the last nine games, led the charge with almost half of his team's points during that first period of play, tallying 16 off 5-9 shooting.

His teammates and coaches encouraged him throughout the game. The junior forward scored the Huskers first seven points of the half. 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.
