 win streak halted.
 
 Rodgers  drilled a three for the game's first points and Georgetown held a 9-8
 lead  just under  three minutes into the contest. Lucas followed with the next
 seven points in Penn State's 10-0 run and the Lady Lions never trailed again.
 
 Lucas  hit  5-of-10 from beyond the  arc in the  first half and the Lady Lions
 connected  on  51.4 percent  overall in  the opening  20 minutes while holding
 Georgetown to just 26.5 percent from the field.
 
 Penn  State built a 53-25 cushion at the break and led by as many as 35 in the
 second half.
