Recap: Penn State vs. Illinois

University Park, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Paced by a career-best 19 points from Kendrick Nunn, the Illinois Fighting Illini held off the Penn State Nittany Lions, 60-55, in a Big Ten Conference bout at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Nunn, who had never before scored in double figures, shot 4-of-9 from 3-point range for Illinois (14-10, 3-8 Big Ten), which snapped a season-long eight- game losing streak. Malcolm Hill chipped in 11 points for the visiting squad.

For PSU (12-12. 3-8), losers of back-to-back games, D.J. Newbill tallied 19 points and six rebounds, while Tim Frazier netted 11 points but on just 4- of-12 shooting from the field.

Neither team shot greater than 39 percent from the floor in the first half, as the teams went into intermission knotted up at 31.

PSU held a three-point lead with under 10 minutes to play following a Newbill jumper, but Illinois finished the game on an 11-3 run, with Nunn's layup at the 5:15 mark proving to be the game-winner.

The Illini outscored the Nittany Lions at the free-throw line, 15-8.
