STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – D.J. Newbill scored 23 points, Tim Frazier added 16 and Penn State held off a late rally by No. 22 Ohio State for a 65-63 win Thursday, its second over the Buckeytes this season.

Penn State swept the season series from Ohio State. The Nittany Lions upset the then-No. 23 Buckeyes 71-70 in overtime on Jan. 29 at Value City Arena.

On Senior Night, the Buckeyes (22-7, 9-7) had a chance to win at the end. Coming out of a timeout with 6.8 seconds left, Lenzelle Smith Jr.’s 3-pointer rimmed out. The Nittany Lions (14-14, 5-10) grabbed the rebound and time expired.

Ohio State was led by LaQuinton Ross, who scored 19 points. Aaron Craft, plagued by foul trouble most of the game, added 10.
