Teniya Page Dominates In Lady Lions’ 59-48 Win Over Pitt

The Lady Lions (9-3) earned themselves a solid win on the road against the Pitt Panthers (6-5) on Sunday. The matchup was a low-scoring affair in which only Siyeh Frazier and Teniya Page scored in the double digits for Penn State, but some rough and tumble defense kept the Panthers contained. Pitt would go 4-25 from three and its bench only scored one point, compared to a solid 31.3% from deep for Penn State and 17 points from its bench.

How It Happened

It looked to be at first to be a sour night for Penn State. Pitt started with a 10-1 run, outgunning and outrunning an overwhelmed Lady Lion’s squad. But Penn State would fire back hard, going on a 16-0 run of their own and establishing control over the game for the rest of the matchup.

Pitt would bounce back in the second, eventually cutting the Lady Lion lead to just three points, but Page hit an awkward mid-range jump shot at the buzzer to keep a five-point Penn State lead going into halftime.

Though it was Page who dominated the match, some other faces emerged from the woodwork to help out the star junior. With Pitt trimming the lead to six points, Frazier chipped in some buckets off the bench, eventually finishing with 12 in total. Kamaria McDaniel hit a key three pointer in the third quarter to push the Penn State lead to 13, playing well despite only seeing the floor for seven minutes.

The Panthers once again clawed back in the fourth after a Frazier and-1, once again cutting the Penn State lead to six, but a pair of three from Page and strong defense helped Penn State hold on to 59-48 victory.

Player Of The Game

Teniya Page | Junior | Guard

Page was unstoppable, leading all teams in scoring with 27. She was busy from deep, going 3-4 on three for the night and staying active on defense, swiping away 3 steals.
