STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- D.J. Newbill scored 22 points and Penn State survived Delaware State's second-half surge in an 80-76 overtime victory Saturday.

Tyshawn Bell hit a contested 3-pointer to give the Hornets a three-point lead with 1:24 remaining in overtime. But Jermaine Marshall, who finished with 15 points, answered with a 3-pointer to tie game at 76-all.

Newbill's layup on the next Penn State possession put the game away for the Nittany Lions (6-4), who have won back-to-back games for the second time this season.

Penn State maintained a double-digit lead for much of the second half, but failed to pull away in regulation and was up by three with less than a minute remaining. Ultimately, Bell knocked down a 3-pointer to send the game into OT.

Casey Walker scored 24 points for the Hornets (5-6), shooting 8 of 19 from the floor.

Sasa Borovnjak had a season-high 14 points for Penn State.
