    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Zhaque Gray scored 15 points, Maggie Lucas added 14 and Penn State (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 12 AP) beat Middle Tennessee State 65-49 on Sunday to win the Lady Lion Classic.

    The Lady Lions (2-0) were down by as many as 10 points twice, including a 12-2 deficit to begin the game. Penn State's first lead came with 8:50 remaining when Lucas hit a 3-pointer to cap a 12-2 Penn State run to make it 46-45.

    Reserve Ariel Edwards chipped in 10 points for the Lady Lions, who were just 5 of 21 from 3-point range.

    Icelyn Ellie and Kortni Jones each scored 13 points for the Blue Raiders (1-1), who took advantage of Penn State's poor shooting in the first half to take a 32-26 lead into halftime.
