    ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Maggie Lucas had 23 points and eight rebounds Thursday night to help Penn State (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) beat Michigan 77-56 Thursday night.

    Alex Bentley had 18 points and eight assists, and Nikki Greene added 13 points and 11 rebounds to help the Lady Lions (16-4, 6-2 Big Ten) win their fifth straight.

    Sam Arnold scored 12 points, Nya Jordan had 10 points and 11 rebounds and Courtney Boylan also scored 10 for Michigan (16-5, 5-3), which lost at home for the first time this season.

    Penn State never trailed and led 35-19 at the break thanks to a 13-0 run midway through the first half. Greene scored nine points during the spurt and Michigan helped the Lady Lions by shooting just 24 percent (8 for 33) from the floor in the first half.

    Penn State players had "JVP" patches, a tribute to former football coach Joe Paterno, sewn to their jerseys.
