IU holds off Penn State 76-73

 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Freshman Robert Johnson scored 20 points and Troy Williams added 15 as Indiana held off Penn State 76-73 on Tuesday.

The Hoosiers (13-4, 3-1 Big Ten) have won two straight but had to survive a replay review on Brandon Taylor's 3-pointer that would have forced overtime. Officials determined the shot came after the buzzer.

Penn State (12-5, 0-4) was led by Ross Travis and Shep Garner, who each had 14 - not quite enough to snap a four-game losing streak.

They certainly had a chance.

The Nittany Lions cut a 12-point deficit to 76-73 on Travis' basket with 53.1 seconds to go. After a defensive stop, they took possession on a jump ball with 14.6 seconds left. But D.J. Newbill's contested 3 from the left wing was off and after Taylor grabbed the rebound, raced to the arc and made the shot, the refs waved it off.
