Lady Lions Dominate Wisconsin, 84-40

On the night of Head Coach Coquese Washington’s birthday, senior forward Nikkie Greene led the #8 Lady Lions to an 84-40 victory in the Bryce Jordan Center on Thursday night.

With her 5th career 20+ point game (and 2nd this season), Greene capped off the game with a buzzer beater and finished with a double-double, scoring 23 points and grabbing 14 rebounds.

All 9 Lady Lions on the roster recorded baskets, including 14 from senior Alex Bentley and 11 from junior Maggie Lucas. As a whole, Penn State nabbed 17 steals, but often had trouble converting on the quick transition.

Wisconsin struggled on the offensive end and didn’t get on the scoreboard until nearly 5 minutes into the first half. Throughout the game, the Badgers were held to 26.4% from the field.

Junior Dara Taylor ran the point position for a decent part of the game, recording 8 points and 6 assists. Senior Gizelle Studevent pushed for a buzzer-beating lay-up to end the first half to give the Lady Lions a 46-21 lead.

Penn State shot 43.8% from the field and went 4-10 from behind the arc. They beat a Big Ten opponent by more than 40 points for the first time since 2006.

The Lady Lions are now 4-0 in the Big Ten Conference and 14-2 on the season. They’ll take on #25 Michigan, who are ranked for the first time since 2002 after going on a 10-0 winning streak, Monday night in Ann Arbor.
