UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (AP) — Seth Lundy scored 23 points, Sam Sessoms added 22 points and the duo combined to make 11 3-pointers to help Penn State beat Cornell 85-74 on Monday night.
Penn State tied a program record with 15 3-pointers, previously set against Purdue in 2000-01 and Hartford in 2008-09.
Cornell led for the last time at 67-64 — after being ahead by as many as 10 points in the first half. Sessoms made two 3-pointers during a 12-4 run, with 3-pointers by Jalen Pickett and Myles Dread, to take a 76-71 lead with 3:38 left.
Sessoms gave Penn State its first double-digit lead of the game at the free-throw line with 35 seconds left. The Nittany Lions made nine free throws in the final two minutes, and held Cornell to one field goal in the final four minutes.
