Lady Lions Cruise to Victory in Nebraska

The Penn State women's basketball team earned one of its most impressive wins of the season on Sunday against Nebraska, winning 93-73.

Penn State's next contest at Illinois (6-11, 0-4 Big Ten) is next Thursday at 8 p.m. Despite their record, Illinois is proving a tough team to beat in its last few games, two of which were within three points, and one that went to overtime.
