Huskers Fall in Overtime at Penn State

Huskers Fall in Overtime at Penn State”

"But the first half, our defense wasn't very bad".

But it was Carr, who notched 18 of 28 in the second half at in on Tuesday, who wrestled control back with tough makes through crowds of defenders in the final five minutes. They combined for four free throws and Watson hit the final shot of regulation moments later to send it to overtime 65-65.

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.

But once again, no one else would step up to carry the load, and NU hit another cold stretch by missing six of its next seven shots and falling back behind by 13 points with less than nine minutes remaining.

It did not take long for Lindenwood to retaliate, as freshman Sierra Burt took her shot and scored at the beginning of the third period, making the score 2-1 Penn State. Nebraska eventually tied the score at 63 on a Copeland free throw with 2:04 left.

Stevens' final field goal gave Penn State a 65-63 lead, but Watson tied it with a jumper at the 1:27 mark.

Penn State quickly reclaimed the lead on four straight points by Carr, but with 14 seconds on the clock, Anton Gill knocked down a clutch 3-pointer to tie it up at 74-74. Roby, who finished with 12 and six rebounds, hit a pair of free throws with 2:50 left, but the Nittany Lions tied the score at 70-all on a putback from Nazeer Bostick with 1:43 left. "But we didn't do enough with discipline and execution". Miles said. "Just so many different things eat at you when you lose a close one".

Nebraska led 15-12, but the Nittany Lions went on an 8-1 spurt, keyed by five points from Lamar Stevens, to build a 20-16 lead with 8:15 left in the first half. The Huskers only shot 36.8 percent from the field but did make nine 3-pointers on the night. Lamar Stevens scored 26 points and Mike Watkins added 20 and grabbed 15 rebounds for the Nittany Lions (13-6, 3-3 Big Ten), who led by as many as 16 in the second half.

Copeland, Roby and Watson, who finished with 21 points, scored Nebraska's final 19 in regulation to get to overtime.

Nebraska will return to action on Monday night when it plays host to IL for an 8 p.m. tip on BTN. He's reportedly unhappy with his role this season and his development over the past season and a half. "It's just that our offense got worse as the thing went on". I don't know how it's going to play out, but at this time Jordy has my full support.

"Tough game and a disappointing loss", coach Tim Miles said on his radio show. "But at the same time, I don't think it's much of a distraction for the players".

The Nittany Lions kept their foot on the pedal coming back for the second half - progressing that late surge to a 13-0 run. With potentially even less low-post depth going forward without Tshimanga, look for Nebraska to use more zone than ever. He's chipped in 10.8 points per game, too. Miles said that decision should come soon. Runs like that could come more often if they shoot better.
