Penn State’s D.J. Newbill makes Cornell pay after turnover with buzzer-beating lay-up (VIDEO)


Cornell just had to inbound the ball and take a foul and make some free throws leading by one with 4.8 seconds left to help close out a victory. Instead, the Big Red made an errant inbounds pass that turned into a Penn State game winner as senior guard D.J. Newbill made the go-ahead lay-up as time expired to give the Nittany Lions a win in the Charleston Classic consolation bracket.

Newbill finished with 26 points on 9-of-16 shooting, 4-of-5 from three, six rebounds and four steals against Cornell on Friday night after playing 50 minutes the day before in a loss to Charlotte.

With the win, Penn State moved to 3-1 on the season.
