No. 23 With a Bullet
Fresh off their sixth straight victory—a 70-66 win over Illinois on Sunday—the Lady Lion basketball team today returned to the national rankings for the first time since the 2004-05 season. The new Associated Press poll has Penn State (15-4, 7-2 Big Ten) ranked 23rd nationally. Third-year coach Coquese Washington seems to be putting her mark on the squad, and the solid play of freshmen Alex Bentley and Nikki Greene shows Washington’s recruiting acumen is already paying off.
Longtime Lady Lion fans know that Penn State used to be a fixture in the national Top 25. Hopefully those days are back.
