STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Dara Taylor scored 20 points and collected seven steals to lead No. 17 Penn State to an 85-62 win over Alcorn State Sunday.

The Lady Lions (8-3) flexed their muscle early, building a 24-8 lead midway through the first half and extending it to a 21-point advantage by intermission. Maggie Lucas helped the first-half surge with 13 points, converting 7 of 7 from the free throw line. The NCAA leader in free throw percentage, converting 97 percent (72 for 74), finished the game 11 for 11 from the line with 19 points.

Tori Waldner grabbed 10 rebounds for Penn State, which held a substantial 47-21 edge on the boards, and Ariel Edwards added 10 points.

Alcorn State (1-9) could not overcome the early deficit, despite a 28-point effort by Tierro Frost. The Braves shot 37 percent from the field (21 of 57) and was 18 of 28 from the line.
