    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Geary Claxton scored a game-high 18 points, Ben Luber added 16 and the Nittany Lions cruised to a 75-51 win over New Hampshire on Tuesday.

    Claxton hit three 3-pointers in the game's first four minutes and added a lay-up to spot the Lions (6-3) with an 11-4 advantage.

    He finished 7-of-12 from the floor for the Lions, who shot 11-of-22 from 3-point range.

    New Hampshire (2-9) pulled to within 25-19 on Jermaine Anderson's jumper from the free-throw line with 5:10 left in the first half, but Penn State responded with a 13-2 run that spanned both halves.

    Luber scored five points during that stretch, including one of his four 3-pointers.

    The Lions used tough defense to force five turnovers and hold the Wildcats to just one field goal during the run that spanned 7:08.

    New Hampshire had 22 turnovers in the game. Blagoj Janev scored 15 points to lead the Wildcats, who have lost four straight and six of their last seven. Anderson scored 13 and Mike Christensen added 10 points and 6 rebounds.

    Jamelle Cornley scored 13 points for Penn State, and Travis Parker grabbed a game-high eight rebounds.
