Lady Lions Needed Overtime to Beat Oakland

The Penn State Lady Lions needed a big comeback and overtime to beat Oakland on Thursday night. Zhaque Gray and Ariel Edwards both had 16 points to help the Lady Lions overcome a 14-point deficit.

Oakland seemed to score with ease on their home floor, while Penn State struggled out of the gate. Poor first-half shooting saw the Lady Lions down by a score of 44-32 at the half. In the second, both teams shot well, and Oakland kept Penn State at bay for most of the half. With 2:46 left in the game, the Lady Lions were still down by ten points.

At this point, Penn State took over the game by scoring the next seven points. Finally, a steal and lay-up from Maggie Lucas tied the game up at 87 with nine seconds left. Oakland missed their final shot to send Penn State to overtime for the second time this season.

The Lady Lions dominated overtime, holding Oakland to just two points, while Penn State scored nine to win the game 96-89. The Lady Lions have now scored over 90 points in each of their opening three games, and they have won both of their road games in overtime.

Penn State is now 3-0 on the season, and they will be returning home to face South Carolina on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. The game will be Facebook “Like It” Day. If fans go to the Lady Lions’ Facebook page and “like” it, they can print off a ticket voucher for one free ticket to the game.
