La Salle rallies to top Lady Lions

UNIVERSITY PARK — La Salle put together a fourth-quarter rally to hand the Penn State women’s basketball team a tough loss Sunday afternoon at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Junior Kamaria McDaniel led Penn State with a career-best 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting. Sophomore Lauren Ebo recorded her first double-double of the season with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Ebo recorded her third-career double-double and first of the season.

“We are learning some very, very hard lessons right now and I hope that’s what they’ll be,” Kieger. “I hope they’ll be lessons and they need to be. We need to learn how to be winners and that’s what I came here to do, and I came here to change the culture.”

Senior Siyeh Frazier led the team with five steals, while freshman Makenna Marisa tallied a team-best three assists.

La Salle’s huge fourth quarter was fueled by a 6-for-8 effort from 3-point range as the Explorers put up 33 points compared to Penn State’s 13. The Lady Lions had their chances at the end, but couldn’t make the shots.

“We cannot give up 33 points in the fourth quarter and expect to win a game,” Kieger said.
