    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Amanda Brown scored 27 points and Kam Gissendanner added 16 to lead Penn State to a 69-58 victory over Michigan State (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today, No. 23 AP) on Thursday night.

    Brown scored 17 points during a 9-minute stretch in the first half, helping the Lady Lions (10-11, 3-5 Big Ten) to a 36-29 halftime lead. Brianne O'Rourke added a season-high 15 points in the Nittany Lions' first victory over a ranked opponent since December 2005.

    Aisha Jefferson led Michigan State (15-5, 6-2) with 15 points.

    The teams combined for six turnovers and managed just four points in the first 3:15, before Gissendanner and Courtney Molinaro combined to score eight straight points and give Penn State a 13-12 lead with 11:09 left in the first half.

    Penn State opened up a 15-point lead in the second half. Michigan State rallied and closed within six with 4:58 left, but couldn't complete the comeback.

    Michigan State shot 35 percent and lost its 13th straight game at the Bryce Jordan Center.
