Looking to regain some momentum in conference play, Penn State couldn’t support a hot start and ultimately fell to No. 17 Indiana 76-60 at the Bryce Jordan Center on Thursday night.
The Lady Lions entered the halftime locker room down just one. However, Penn State was outscored by 15 points in the second half.
Leading the way for Penn State was guard Kamaria McDaniel who led all scorers in points with 24 on 25 shots. McDaniel and fellow guard Siyeh Frazier were the only Lady Lions with double figures.
After the game, coach Carolyn Kieger emphasized the fact that Penn State had only eight assists on the night and that she is tired of seeing “selfish basketball.”
“We can talk all day about we’re young and don’t understand the offense and use that as an excuse,” Kieger said. “We don’t make excuses around here, we have to get better and we can’t tolerate the same mistakes over and over.”
On the other side, the Hoosiers were led by guard Ali Patberg who recorded 18 points and nine assists. The Notre Dame transfer recorded her third straight game with double-digit scoring. Along with Patberg, forward Mackenzie Holmes also put up 18 points for the Hoosiers.
