Lady Lions Down Indiana, 76-54

The 8th-ranked Lady Lions (19-3, 9-1 Big Ten) made quick work of the Indiana Hoosiers (10-13, 1-9) beating them, 76-54, in a Big Ten matchup at Assembly Hall on Thursday night. Last night’s game gives the Lady Lion’s 13 wins in their last 14 match ups.

Helped partly by three early fouls from Penn State guard Maggie Lucas, the Hoosiers were able to keep it fairly close ending the first half, 37-30. Even while the game was close, the Lady Lions had no problem making their presence known near the hoop, outscoring their opponents in the paint, 18-6, in the first half alone.

Lucas didn’t let the fouls slow her down, and by the end of the night she had put up 20 points, matched by teammate Alex Bentley’s own 20 points. While the two accounted for half of the team’s points, their offensive production was matched by Mia Nickson’s and Nikki Green’s defensive production who each recorded double-digit rebounds. Nickson also put up 13 points.

After the Hoosiers closed the gap to three in the first minutes of the second half, the Lions pulled away, outscoring their opponents, 39-2. This was in large part due to a 15-2 run that the Hoosiers couldn’t recover from.

The Lady Lions will be back in action in at home on Sunday at 2 p.m. in another Big Ten matchup against Michigan State.
