STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) β€” Brandon Taylor scored 11 of his 24 points with less than 10 minutes left and Penn State shocked No. 22 Indiana with a 68-63 win on Saturday night.

Devin Foster added 13 points and Shep Garner chipped in 12 for the Nittany Lions (12-12, 3-8 Big Ten), who snapped a four-game losing streak.

Nick Zeisloft led Indiana (19-5, 9-2) with 14 points while Yogi Ferrell added 13.

Taylor nearly equaled their individual outputs when it mattered most. He sparked his team on a 21-15 run with a midrange shot with 9:34 left and hit his second of four 3-pointers on Penn State’s next possession. He followed with another 3 moments later that gave Penn State a 55-50 lead.

The Hoosiers pulled it even at 58 on a pair of Zeisloft free throws, but the Nittany Lions took the lead for good on a Julian Moore layup that put them up 64-61 with 1:13 remaining.

Garner hit four of six shots in the final 37 seconds to clinch Penn State’s win in a game that featured 14 lead changes and 13 ties.
