rallied from a 16-point, second-half deficit to defeat Penn State
Tied at 73 with less than a minute left, Nolen intercepted an
errant pass at the foul line from Penn State's Geary Claxton, who
was double-teamed in the post. Nolen drove the length of the court
before an intentional foul call on Jamelle Cornley.
Nolen hit both foul shots, then sank another free throw less
than a second later before the Nittany Lions' Talor Battle missed a
desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Claxton led Penn State with 19 points and 10 rebounds, his ninth
double-double of the season.
