STATE COLLEGE — D.J. Newbill scored 23 points, Tim Frazier added 16 and Penn State held off a late rally by No. 22 Ohio State for a 65-63 win Thursday on Senior Night.

The Buckeyes (22-7, 9-7 Big Ten) had a chance to win at the end. Coming out of a timeout with 6.8 seconds left, Lenzelle Smith Jr.’s 3-pointer rimmed out. The Nittany Lions (14-14, 5-10) grabbed the rebound and time expired.

Ohio State was led by LaQuinton Ross, who scored 19 points. Aaron Craft, plagued by foul trouble most of the game, added 10.

Penn State swept the season series from Ohio State. The Nittany Lions upset the then-No. 23 Buckeyes 71-70 in overtime on Jan. 29 in Columbus.

Arkansas 71,

No. 17 Kentucky 67

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Coty Clarke scored seven points in overtime and Arkansas upset Kentucky to complete a season sweep.

Six weeks after Michael Qualls beat the Wildcats with a last-second dunk in OT, Clarke lifted the Razorbacks this time with a 3-pointer and four free throws in the extra period, including two with 36.7 seconds left for a 69-64 lead.

Free throws were the difference in the game, with Arkansas making all six attempts in overtime and going 16 for 16 overall. Kentucky was 12 of 22 from the line.

James Young’s long-range basket brought Kentucky within two, but Arkansas’ Kikko Haydar made two more from the line with 17 seconds left for the final margin.

Duquesne 71,

No. 10 Saint Louis 64

ST. LOUIS — Micah Mason scored 22 points and Duquesne stunned the first-place Billikens with a 46-point second half.

Saint Louis had been unbeaten in Atlantic 10 play and had only lost to a pair of ranked teams in Wichita State and Wisconsin before Thursday.

The win was the Dukes’ first over a top-10 team on the road in more than 50 years.


No. 2 Notre Dame 98,

No. 14 North Carolina 75

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Kayla McBride scored 28 points and Natalie Achonwa added 24 to lead Notre Dame to a victory to finish the regular season unbeaten at home.

The Irish (28-0, 15-0 ACC) opened a 22-point lead late in the first half and led 55-38 at intermission.
