Louisiana Tech 79, Penn St. 62
RUSTON, La. (AP) _ Amanda Wilson scored 16 points, and pressure defense helped lead Louisiana Tech to a 79-62 victory Sunday night over Penn State in the second round of the NCAA West Regional.
LaQuan Stallworth and Tamicha Jackson added 15 points apiece, and Monica Maxwell had 10 as Louisiana Tech (28-2) won its 20th straight game and advanced to the regional semifinals in Los Angeles.
Tech will play the winner of Monday night’s second-round game between LSU and Notre Dame.
The Lady Techsters led just 33-30 before going on runs of 9-2 and 25-7 in the second half. Much of the momentum came from outstanding defense and an up-tempo attack.
Penn State (22-8) got 18 points from Andrea Garner, who dislocated a kneecap in Friday’s first-round game against Virginia. Shawnta Vanzant added 15 points and Lisa Shepherd 14.
