UNIVERSITY PARK, PA. - Led by senior guard Maggie Lucas' (Narberth, Pa.) 33 points, the Penn State Lady Lions (1-0, 0-0 Big Ten) broke the Bryce Jordan Center scoring record on the way to a 117-77 season-opening win over St. Francis (Pa.) (0-1). The previous BJC record was 114 points by the Lady Lions against Northwestern on Jan. 2, 2000. The Lady Lions start 1-0 for the seventh consecutive season under Coquese Washington.

Lucas notched her fifth career 30-point game on the strength of a 16-for-16 effort from the free throw line. She also filled the stat sheet with eight points, five assists and five steals. Lucas' perfect mark from the charity stripe ties the school record for free throw percentage in a game, also held by Jess Strom (15-15; Minnesota, 1/30/05) and Brianne O'Rourke (15-15; Duke, 12/2/07). The 16 makes by Lucas are also a Bryce Jordan Center record.
