    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Lawrence Westbrook's long jumper as time expired capped a frantic final minute and Ralph Sampson III had 13 points and two key blocks late to lead Minnesota past Penn State 66-64 on Saturday.

    Westbrook skipped to center court to join his jubilant teammates after his desperation shot from the left corner went in to give Minnesota (14-8, 5-5 Big Ten) just its second road victory of the season.

    Talor Battle's layup with 9 seconds left after a scramble for a loose ball tied the game, sending the Jordan Center crowd into hysterics.

    But they would leave disappointed again after Westbrook's bucket. Penn State (8-15, 0-11) is off to its worst start in league play, and is two losses shy of its longest losing streak in coach Ed DeChellis' seven seasons on the bench.

    Battle had two shots blocked in the final 24 seconds by the 6-foot-11 Sampson.
