Lady Lions Lose in WNIT First Round

The second-seeded Lady Lions could not hold on to a first half lead and eventually lost to seventh-seeded Hofstra 76-68 in the first round of the WNIT.

Penn State led by as much as nine points before Hofstra took the lead at 29-28 with 2:45 left in the first half. The Lady Lions, led by sophomore Tyra Grant’s 14 first-half points, were up 34-33 at half-time.

The first half was quite sloppy, with the teams combining for 24 turnovers. Hofstra was also rebounding better than the Lady Lions, leading 21-11 at the half.

The second half was a different story, and it belonged to Hofstra. They started the half on a 10-2 run and never let up. Penn State would come within two points with 3:34 left in the game, which recharged a small but boisterous crowd. However, they were never able to tie or take the lead. Hofstra drained their free throws at the end of the game to win by eight points.

Grant finished the game with 23 points. Hofstra was commanded by senior guard Sam Brigham, who had 18 points. Penn State sophomore Julia Trogele was knocked out of the game early in the first half with an injury.

The Lady Lions end their campaign in disappointing fashion with a 17-14 record and now join the men’s team as they await next season.
