Myles Dread kept Penn State's long-shot hopes of a Big Ten regular season championship alive with a long shot.
Dread's 3-pointer with less than 30 seconds left Wednesday night enabled the No. 16 Nittany Lions to rally for a 65-64 home win over Rutgers after blowing a 17-point lead. At 21-7 overall and 11-6 in the conference, Penn State is two games behind first-place Maryland with three games remaining.
The first of those games is Saturday at No. 18 Iowa, which can do no better than tie for the regular season title but would still like to build momentum for the postseason.
