Penn State Lady Lions Fall Out of Big Ten Race

The Penn State women’s basketball team suffered their seventh loss of the season on Thursday, falling to Ohio State 89-67. The loss effectively knocks the Lady Lions out of the hunt for a regular season Big Ten title.

Penn State shot well against Ohio State, but the Buckeyes had too much offense and the Lady Lions committed too many turnovers. Penn State shot 53.2 percent from the field, but had 26 turnovers. Ohio State, on the other hand, shot 53.6 percent and only had 15 turnovers. Mia Nickson and Zhaque Gray both had 14 points for the Lady Lions, while freshman sensation Maggie Lucas was held to just eight.

With the loss, Penn State drops to 21-7 overall and 10-4 in the Big Ten. The Lady Lions are technically still in the hunt for the regular season Big Ten title, but this would require Michigan State to lose their final three games and Penn State to win their last two. Barring this unlikely circumstance, the Lady Lions will most likely finish the regular season in second place.

Penn State’s final two games are both at home. Next up for the Lady Lions is Purdue on Thursday at 7 p.m. In their first meeting of the season, Purdue won on their home court 79-69. Penn State has a strong home record, however, and will hope to finish the season with some momentum heading into the Big Ten Tournament.
