She ended the afternoon with 1,474 career tallies to sit No. 14 on the Penn State scoring charts, passing Katina Mack (1,463; 1992, 94-96) and Jess Stromm (1,466; 2002-05) in the game.

"That is where you need to be at this time", Stollings said. A 3-pointer from Page, followed by four-straight points from Carter pulled Penn State back within five points, 14-9, with 4:26 to play. Sophomore guard Gadiva Hubbard led the way with 25 points. Freshman Destiny Pitts scored 17 with three three-pointers, Kenisha Bell had 15, and senior Carlie Wagner and sophomore Jasmine Brunson each added 11. Frazier scored just six points (2-11 FG), well short of his average of 12.5 points per game prior to the contest.

IL got off to a fast start, as it has done in several conference games, and established a 16-10 lead at the 14:48 mark of the first half when Lucas canned a jumper. She sank two three-pointers, another bucket and added a block and defensive rebound all in less than two minutes early on.

"Today, I wasn't very pleased with that locker room", Underwood said.

"I knew from warm-ups that I was going to shoot well, and at the beginning of the game they just kept going in", Hubbard said.

She was a flawless 4-for-4 shooting in the first quarter, including 2-for-2 from three-point range.

IL also went scoreless over a 4:13 minute stretch midway through the first half, though it responded with a 7-0 run over a 2:25 minute-span, starting at the 5:20 minute mark in the first half. She scored a game-high 25 points in total. The spread-the-wealth scoring is part of the momentum for the homestand, according to Pitts.

"We just got to get more ball movement", junior forward Leron Black said. This stretch began with an upset win on the road over Ohio State on January 26, which ended on a buzzer beater from Penn State's Tony Carr.

That all-around team effort helped the Gophers to 33 points early, tying a season high for points in the first quarter. They didn't let up out of the break, either.

Minnesota came out on fire, opening the game on a 12-2 run.

Defensively, the Gophers held their opponent to eight points in a quarter (second quarter) for the second time this season.

The victory also gave the Gophers sole possession of fourth place in the Big Ten standings.

With only a few weeks left in the regular season, the Nittany Lions desperately needed a win against a tough Minnesota side in order to stop a three-game skid.

Both teams got off to a slow start in the second half, however, IL went 7:18 minutes without scoring as Penn State put together a 12-0 run to take a 13-point lead.
