Seth Lundy scored 25 points, Andrew Funk added 23 and both swished seven of Penn State's 18 3-pointers in an 85-66 win against visiting Indiana on Wednesday night in State College, Pa.
Penn State (12-5, 3-3 Big Ten) overcame a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double from Indiana's Trayce Jackson-Davis behind 58.1 percent accuracy from deep. The Nittany Lions snapped a two-game skid as Indiana (10-6, 1-4) lost its third straight.
Penn State matched a program record for 3s in a single game after also accomplishing the feat Nov. 7 and Nov. 10.
Jalen Hood-Schifino (11 points), Tamar Bates (11) and Trey Galloway (10) also finished in double figures for Indiana.
Lundy surpassed 1,000 career points on a dunk with 6:24 to play.
After losing at Iowa by two Thursday and by one to visiting Northwestern three days later, the Hoosiers struggled to keep things close.
A Camren Wynter layup on Penn State's first possession of the second half stretched the advantage to 13 before Jackson-Davis fueled an 8-0 Indiana spurt. He scored six points during the run to cut the deficit to five, but the Nittany Lions weathered the rally behind a trusty asset. Funk hit a pair of 3s around a Galloway trey for Indiana to restore the hosts' lead to double digits.
Jalen Pickett had 12 points and eight assists for Penn State, which led by as many as 23. Evan Mahaffey chipped in 12 points.
Penn State benefited from a 9-for-17 effort from long range in the first half to take a 37-26 lead into the break. Lundy connected on four treys en route to 14 points before the half, while Funk made three 3-pointers as part of his 11 points.
The home team has won each of the past six meetings between the schools. Nine of Penn State's 14 all-time victories against Indiana -- against 41 losses -- have come at home.
