Lady Lions remain on roll

UNIVERSITY PARK — The Penn State women’s basketball team scored its most points against a Big Ten opponent in nearly 20 years Sunday afternoon as the Lady Lions picked up their fourth-straight win with a dominant 98-74 victory against Wisconsin at the Bryce Jordan Center.

The Lady Lions have won their last four games and five of their last seven.

Penn State’s 98 points were the most against a Big Ten opponent since the Lady Lions hung 101 on Illinois on Feb. 15, 2001. Penn State finished with a season-high 26 assists compared to just three turnovers.

Five different Lady Lions finished in double figures with sophomore Makenna Marisa leading the way with 20 points. Senior Johnasia Cash tallied 18.

“So impressed and proud of our team tonight,” PSU coach Carolyn Kieger said. “That was a complete team victory from top to bottom.”
