Lady Lions’ Offense Goes Off In 106-50 Win Over Saint Peter’s

Penn State (1-1) welcomed Saint Peter’s (0-1) to the Bryce Jordan Center for the home opener. The Lady Lions fell in the season opener, but rebounded against the Peacocks for the 900th win in the history of the Penn State women’s basketball program.

How It Happened

The Lady Lions kicked off the historic win with a record-setting first quarter — scoring 39 points in a single quarter. After starting the game off 10-2, the Lady Lions finished the quarter off on a 29-10 run to end with a 39-12 lead.

Penn State picked up the defense in the second quarter, allowing just six minutes in the 10 minute span. Shooting 65% from the field, the Lady Lions pushed their lead to 64-18 with 20 points from Lindsey Spann as the teams went into halftime.

Saint Peter’s couldn’t close the gap in the third quarter. The Lady Lions weren’t as deadly on offense — putting up 16 points in the quarter — but stayed strong defensively as the game went to the fourth quarter with Penn State leading 80-31.

Saint Peter’s couldn’t stop the Lady Lions’ speedy offense on the day with six Penn State players reaching double digits in points and Spann tying her career-high 31 points as the Lady Lions cruised by the Peacocks to a 106-50 win.
