FREEPORT, Bahamas -- Maggie Lucas scored 25 points to earn MVP honors as No. 13 Penn State won its second Junkanoo Jam title with a 72-60 win over Illinois State on Saturday.

Dara Taylor added 12 points, three assists and three steals for the Lady Lions (5-1), who won the tournament in 2003. Alex Harris and Talia East each had 11 rebounds in the win.

Alexis Foley scored 24 for the Redbirds (1-4) with Octavia Crump adding 13. Illinois State shot 31 percent.

Penn State took control early with an 11-2 run for an 11-5 lead. A quick six points made it 17-7. That pattern continued until the Nittany Lions took control for a 44-34 lead at halftime. Midway through the second half Illinois State got it down to 52-49 but the lead was quickly back up to 12 as Keke Sevillian hit a 3 and Lucas made six consecutive free throws.
