STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Jermaine Marshall scored 25 points and Penn State upset No. 4 Michigan 84-78 in men’s college basketball Wednesday night for its first Big Ten victory in more than a year.
The Nittany Lions (9-18, 1-14) had lost 18 straight regular-season conference games dating to last season, but they roared back from a 15-point deficit with 10:39 left behind the energetic play of Marshall. The junior guard scored 19 in the second half, including four 3-pointers that whipped Jordan Center fans into a frenzy.
D.J. Newbill added 17 points for Penn State, which hit a season-high 10 3-pointers. Marshall’s twisting drive to the basket gave the Nittany Lions a three-point lead before Michigan’s Glenn Robinson III misfired on a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left.
Sasa Borovnjak had a memorable Senior Night, hitting two free throws with 15 seconds left to seal the win.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 points for the Wolverines (23-5, 10-5).
No. 5 Miami 76, Virginia Tech 58: In Coral Gables, Fla., Miami went 11 minutes without a basket, then finally shook off a 10-day scoring slump and pulled away.
Shane Larkin had 22 points and six assists to lead the Hurricanes (23-4, 14-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Virginia Tech fell to 12-16, 3-12.
No. 15 Oklahoma State 64, TCU 47: In Fort Worth, Texas, Le’Bryan Nash scored a career-high 28 points, Marcus Smart had his typically strong all-around game not far from the high school where he won two state championships, and No. 15 Oklahoma State beat offensively challenged TCU.
Nash had the first two baskets in an 18-1 run that bridged the first and second halves and put the Cowboys (21-6, 11-4 Big 12) in control for good.
Smart, a freshman who won back-to-back state titles at Flower Mound Marcus High School, had nine points, five assists and three steals — all categories in which he is among the Big 12 leaders.
Kyan Anderson led the Horned Frogs with 15 points. Devonta Abron had 12 points and nine rebounds off the bench.
TCU (10-18, 1-14), one of the lowest-scoring teams in the country, missed 12 straight shots while going more than 10 minutes without a field goal and ended up shooting 27 percent.
