EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Boo Buie scored 15 points, all five Northwestern starters reached double digits in scoring and the Wildcats defeated Penn State 68-63. There were four lead changes and a couple of ties in the first 4 minutes of the second half before a 3-pointer by Buie gave the Wildcats a lead they would not relinquish over the final 15 minutes. A 6-1 run got Penn State within 54-53 near the 4-minute mark, but Ryan Langborg buried a 3-pointer to start a 7-0 run for the Wildcats.
