Lady Lions Win Big Over Army

The Penn State women’s basketball team continued their winning ways at home, improving to 8-2 with a dominating 95-65 victory over Army on Wednesday night.

Mia Nickson led the way for the Lady Lions with 23 points, while Maggie Lucas chipped in an even 20. The entire team got time on the court as Penn State coasted to a win.

A 12-0 run early in the game gave the Lady Lions a strong lead that they would never relinquish. The teams exchanged runs in the first half, but Penn State would ultimately enter the break up by 13 points. In the second half, the Lady Lions played strong defense, holding Army without a basket for the first six and a half minutes. The offense did not slow down either, and Penn State went out to as much as a 36-point lead. The Lady Lions cruised through the second half.

All ten Lady Lions scored in the game, with Julia Trogele and Alex Bently joining Nickson and Lucas in double figures. Trogele had 11 rebounds for a double-double. Penn State continues to shoot well at home, this time averaging 49 percent.

Next up for Penn State is the third game in their seven-game home stand. The Lady Lions play Maine on Sunday at noon. This game will be Toys for Tots day, so any person bringing a new, unwrapped toy can get in for free.
