Lady Lions Dominates Bucknell 92-49

The Lady Lions bounced back strong last night following a tough 19-point loss to UConn on Sunday afternoon by crushing Bucknell 92-49 with four players scoring in the double-digits.

Sophomore center Candice Agee had a career-high 16 points while adding 6 rebounds. Seniors Maggie Lucas and Ariel Edwards continued to have dominating performances. Lucas had 17 points and 4 rebounds while Edwards had 14 points and 7 rebounds. Freshman guard Kaliyah Mitchell also had an impressive game with 14 points and 8 rebounds of her own.

After five minutes Penn State held only a slim 10-9 lead, but that would soon change. The Lady Lions exploded and went on a 13-0 run and took a 23-9 lead with 11:59 left in the first half, never looking back as the team obliterated Bucknell. After two free throws from Bucknell, Penn State went on another run, scoring 10 of the game’s next 12 points to increase the lead to 20, 33-13.

The Lady Lions continued to dominate on both ends of the floor for the remainder of the half, outscoring the Bison 20-10.

The two teams went back and forth to open the second half, but the Lady Lions took over once again, going on to outscore the Bison 27-14. Seven different Nittany Lions scored in the last 10 minutes, including freshmen Jenny DeGraaf’s first career basket.

The Lady Lions head to the Bahamas for Thanksgiving where it will face Oregon State in the opening round of the Junkanoo Jam on Friday at 3:15 p.m. The team will make its return to the Bryce Jordan Center against Notre Dame on December 4 at 7:30 p.m.
