Billy Oliver scored 21 points on seven 3-pointers and Penn State stunned Purdue 65-45, holding the Boilermakers to an ice cold 31.9 percent shooting. Matt Glover collected 11 rebounds for the Nittany Lions.

Dominating from start to finish, the Penn State men's basketball team (9-7, 1-2 Big Ten) earned a 65-45 victory against Purdue (12-4, 2-1 Big Ten) Thursday night at the Bryce Jordan Center. The triumph marked the first Big Ten win under first year head coach Patrick Chambers and the first conference loss for Purdue this season.

The Nittany Lions were led by senior Billy Oliver (Chatham, N.J.) who posted a career-high 21 points, all from beyond the three point line. Junior Tim Frazier (Houston, Texas) was second on the team with 15 points and also collected a team-best nine assists. Junior Jermaine Marshall (Etters, Pa.) rounded out the top scorers for Penn State with 10 points. Sophomore Matt Glover (Orange, Calif.) was key on defense with a personal-best 11 rebounds.

Penn State shot 43 percent for the game, including 52 percent in the second half. The Nittany Lions outscored the Boilermakers 26-8 in the paint, 14-10 off turnovers and 9-3 in fast break opportunities
