Lady Lions Release Non-Conference Schedule

With eight fresh faces coming in to the program for the 2013-2014 season, the Lady Lions have released their non-conference schedule that includes eight home games and a tournament in the Bahamas.

Penn State will begin its season  in the Bryce Jordan Center on November 8th against the Red Flash of St. Francis, who posted a 17-16 record last season. Two days later, the Lady Lions will take on Fordham, who is fresh off a 26-9 2012 season, their best in 30 years.

Fans will proably be most excited for the game November 17 when the Lady Lions host the 2013 National Champion UConn Huskies. The Lady Lions fell to the Huskies last year in Connecticut 67-52. The last time the two teams faced off in Happy Valley was in 1983.

Soon after, they take on Bucknell who struggled last season and ended with a 15-16 record.

Over Thanksgiving break, the team flies out for the Junkanoo Jam tournament in the Bahamas. The last time they played in this tournament they had strong wins against George Washington and Kansas State in 2003.

When they come back from the tournament, they take on head coach Coquese Washington’s alma mater, Notre Dame, in the B1G/ACC Challenge on December 4. Afterwards, they head out to Georgetown on December 8 and to South Dakota State on Dec 11.

They finish out their non-conference schedule against the 2011 National Champion Texas A&M Aggies, Alcorn State, and Hartford all at home before Penn State’s winter break.

The Lady Lions are coming off of another Big Ten Championship season and a 20-game winning streak at home. This strong non-conference schedule should be a true test to see how their season will pan out. With Maggie Lucas at the helm and players like Dara Taylor and Ariel Edwards, their experience and talent should result in some solid outcomes.
