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 on Senior Night.

The Buckeyes (22-7, 9-7 Big Ten) 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.

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 in Columbus, Ohio.
