Kansas State falls to Penn State, 69-56

November 30, 2003


— Tanisha Wright had 23 points in No. 7 Penn State's 69-56 victory over No. 9 Kansas State Saturday in the championship game of the Junkanoo Shootout. Last season, Kansas State beat the Lions, 88-66, in the finals of the Preseason NIT.

Kelly Mazzante finished with 16 points for Penn State (3-1), and Jess Strom added 15 points and six assists.

"Revenge is sweet and we definitely talked about it a lot," Strom said. "That was a bad game for us last year, and we just wanted to come back and prove they are not better than us.

"I'm the point guard, so I'm supposed to be in the middle of everything, and I was just trying to get my teammates involved. We decided just to attack their press, and I was able to dribble through it."

Nicole Ohlde and Megan Mahoney each scored 15 points for Kansas State (2-2).
