Lady Lions Win Late Again With 82-80 Victory Over Marshall

The Lady Lions (6-2) kicked off this epic day of Penn State sports with a return trip to the Bryce Jordan Center after three-straight on the road. The opponent, Marshall (5-2), made its first-ever trip to the BJC coming off a win over Morgan State on Wednesday. Teniya Page dropped 31 points in a tight Lady Lion win 82-80.

How It Happened

The game as a whole was a back-and-forth battle. Marshall had the lead after the first quarter with a team effort that helped produce 23 points. For stretches of the quarter, the Lady Lions struggled to find their range and trailed 23-17 at the first intermission.

Starting the quarter on a 9-0 run, Penn State took the lead for the first time in the game. Marshall refound its groove over the course of the rest of the quarter and went into halftime with a 37-35 lead. Teniya Page led all scorers with 12 points.

Page continued to lead the Lady Lions as the game progressed into the second half. By quarter’s end, she had already dropped four three-pointers and Penn State entered the final quarter with a 59-58 lead.

The tight battle continued into the closing stages of the game. With just more than two minutes left in the fourth quarter, the game was tied 72-72. Marshall took a one-point lead with under a minute left after draining a three, but Page answered with a bucket to give Penn State a lead it wouldn’t give back. Crucial stops from the Lady Lions and made free throws iced out an 82-80 victory.
