COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – D.J. Newbill hit a pull-up jumper over Aaron Craft with 2 seconds left in overtime, lifting Penn State to a 71-70 victory over No. 24 Ohio State and ending years of futility against the Buckeyes.

Ohio State (16-5, 3-5) has lost five of six after a 15-0 start that saw it rise to No. 3 in the polls.

Newbill, who led the Nittany Lions (11-10, 2-6) with 25 points, hit a 3 that forced overtime. Brandon Taylor added 19 points and Graham Woodward had 11 as Penn State ended Ohio State’s string of victories in the series at 18.

LaQuinton Ross scored 16 points, Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 15 and Amir Williams added 12 for the Buckeyes.

Buckeyes coach Thad Matta was 17-0 against Penn State since taking over as head coach in 2004-05.

Penn State improved to 2-11 at Value City Arena and is 3-4 on the road this season.
