Washington Wins 100th Game as Lady Lions Defeat Hokies

The eleventh ranked Lady Lions (8-2) snapped a two-game road losing streak as head coach Coquese Washington recorded her 100th career coaching victory in a 60-41 win over the Virginia Tech Hokies (4-4) last night.

The Hokies took a 4-0 lead, but that would be the last time all night they led as the Nittany Lions answered with a 7-0 run. The Hokies hung close throughout the first half, but the Lady Lions went to the locker room with a 28-21 lead. The margin would quickly extend in the final twenty minutes as the Lady Lions held a 46-28 lead at the midway point of the second half. The Hokies would cut the lead to twelve twice, but that was as close as they came before the visitors went on an 11-0 spurt to close out the contest.

Maggie Lucas led the way with 17 points on 7-9 shooting from the field and also added 4 rebounds and 2 assists. Dara Taylor tied a career-high with 15 points while Alex Bentley chipped in 10 and Mia Nichkson recorded a double-double.

Washington is the second coach in program history to eclipse the 100-win mark, the other one being Rene Portland. After some speculation last spring that the Michigan native might head home to accept the Wolverines job, Washington now has a contract extension and a milestone win accomplishment.

Now on a two-game winning streak, the Lady Lions return to the Bryce Jordan Center for three straight home games. First up is South Dakota State this Sunday followed by New Jersey Institute of Technology and the Big Ten opener against Northwestern,
