Four PSU players scored in double figures, led by guard Dara Taylor’s 18 points. The Nittany Lions’ 76 points broke MSU’s streak of holding opponents under their season scoring average this seasone.
Sophomore forward Becca Mills led MSU with 17 points and hauled in five rebounds while sophomore center Jasmine Hines added 12 points and five boards.
