D. J. Newbill scored 17 points, Geno Thorpe added 12 and Penn State defeated Dartmouth 69-49 Monday for its 10th straight win and a school-record 12th non-conference victory.
Newbill followed with a driving layup, got the ball from Ross Travis on a team and fed Travis for an easy slam and a 64-42 advantage.
Newbill ended the half by taking an inbounds pass with 9 seconds left, hesitating at the top of the key and then powering in quickly for a long-reaching slam dunk.
The Big Green didn't reach the bonus situation from the free throw line in the first half and shot 3 of 5 from the line; Penn State was 7 of 7.
Penn State has won 12 straight non-conference games on its home floor over two seasons.
