STATE COLLEGE (AP) — Seth Lundy scored 23 points, Sam Sessoms added 22 points and the duo combined to make 11 3-pointers to help Penn State beat Cornell 85-74 on Monday.

Penn State tied a program record with 15 3-pointers, previously set against Purdue in 2000-01 and Hartford in 2008-09.

Cornell led for the last time at 67-64 — after being ahead by as many as 10 points in the first half.

Sessoms made two 3-pointers during a 12-4 run, with 3-pointers by Jalen Pickett and Myles Dread, to take a 76-71 lead with 3:38 left.

Sessoms gave Penn State its first double-digit lead of the game at the free throw line with 35 seconds left. The Nittany Lions made nine free throws in the final two minutes and held Cornell to one field goal in the final four minutes.

Pickett had 15 points and six assists and John Harrar grabbed 12 rebounds for Penn State (3-1).
