STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – Lamar Stevens scored 16 of his 25 points in the second half and Penn State beat No. 21 Maryland 70-64 on Tuesday night.
Tony Carr added 14 points and Mike Watkins had 10 for the Nittany Lions (13-12, 5-7 Big Ten) who snapped a two-game skid and beat their fourth Top 25 opponent since last February.
Justin Jackson and Kevin Huerter scored 12 points each and Melo Trimble added 11 for the Terrapins (20-4, 8-3) who lost their second in a row.
The Nittany Lions played stingy defense early and led for all but 1:48 and by as many as 14 points with 9:59 remaining.
The Terps cut the lead to 62-58 with 3:26 left after Jackson and Jaylen Brantley hit consecutive 3s. But a layup from Nazeer Bostick and six combined free throws from Carr, Stevens and Josh Reaves kept the game out of reach.
