Lady Lions Pick Up 16 Votes In Week Four AP Poll
After an impressive 6-1 start to the 2023-24 regular season, Penn State women’s basketball picked up 16 votes in the most recent AP Top-25 poll Monday. It puts the Lady Lions as the 29th-ranked team in the nation and the fourth-highest in the Big Ten.
The Lady Lions won one of two games at the Baha Mar Hoops Pink Flamingo Tournament this weekend and just missed out on winning the second game after falling to the now-ranked No. 6 USC Trojans 71-70 Wednesday.
The blue and white are led by the two-headed monster in guards Makenna Marisa and Shay Ciezki, the two leading scorers for the Lady Lions. The players average 16 and 15.6 points, respectively, which puts them in the top 11 in points per game in the Big Ten.
This is the first time Penn State has received votes in the women’s basketball AP Top-25 poll since the 2014 season.
