Uniontown, PA- The Penn State Beaver Lady Lions Bid to repeat as USCAA National Champions came to an abrupt end Friday night. The Lions ran into a hot #1 seeded St Joseph's (VT) while playing maybe the worst game they have played in recent memory.
In the first quarter, St. Joe's built a 29-16 lead. By half, the lead grew to 51-32. St Joe's kept the pedal down, starting the third off with a 12-4 run, expanding their lead to 63-36 by the media timeout. That margin would stand after three quarters of play, as St Joe's led 73-46. Beaver won the final quarter, but came up way short, losing by a score of 92-71.
After the loss in the USCAA semifinals, Beaver finished 19-10 overall while winning their fourth consecutive PSUAC Championship. Senior's Khalia Adams and Morgan Kurtz finish their careers winning four PSUAC Championships and one USCAA National Championship.
