STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Maggie Lucas wants to squeeze at least one more weekend out of her storied career.
Lucas leads No. 3 seed Penn State (23-7) against 11th-seeded Florida (20-12) on Tuesday night in the second round of the Stanford Regional.
She has led the Nittany Lions to four straight NCAA tournament appearances and three regular-season Big Ten titles. She holds the team and conference record for made 3-pointers.
As a bonus, the Nittany Lions get to play at the Bryce Jordan Center, their home court that was rocking after they knocked off Wichita State on Sunday.
Florida is trying to reach the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1998. Coach Amanda Butler has led the Gators to seven postseason trips (three NCAA, four WNIT) but she's still looking for second weekend play on basketball's biggest stage.
