Penn State Icers Take Two From Robert Morris

The Penn State Icers rebounded from two tough losses by sweeping Robert Morris (PA) over the weekend. The Icers scored 16 goals over two important wins that kept them in the playoff hunt.

On Friday, Tim O'Brien got things started for the Icers in a 9-4 win by scoring the only goal of the first period. In the second, Eric Steinour got a short-handed goal to put the Icers up by two, but Robert Morris got one back six minutes later. Dominic Morrone, George Saad and O'Brien all contributed goals in the period, yet Penn State took only a slim 5-3 lead into the third.

Women’s Basketball Beat Illinois 83-62

Maggie Lucas broke the record for most three-point shots made by a Penn State freshman, and the Penn State women's basketball team cruised to an 83-62 victory over Illinois on Sunday afternoon.

Penn State started the game slowly but more than made up for it with great three-point shooting as the first half wore on. Facing a 9-2 deficit, the Lady Lions went on a 12-0 run that included a behind-the-back pass from Alex Bentley to Lucas, who hit the three-pointer. Illinois tied it at 16 before Penn State used a 10-0 run to break the game open. The Lady Lions went into the break-up 41-23 thanks to 14 points from Lucas and a great 46.7 shooting percentage.
