Page gives Penn St women 70-67 win over No. 25 Rutgers

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Teniya Page made 4 of 5 free throws with a second left and finished with 34 points to lead Penn State to a 70-67 win over No. 25 Rutgers on Thursday night.

Down 11 with seven minutes to go, the Scarlet Knights rallied behind Tyler Scaife, taking a 65-64 lead on her 3-point play and going up 67-66 on her jumper on the right baseline with 38.7 seconds left.

Page missed a shot with 30 seconds left but Jaida Travascio-Green snared the offensive rebound. The Lady Lions then held for one shot and Page was fouled by Nigia Greene on her game-winning 3-point attempt. The call also drew a technical on Rutgers' bench.

Page made the first free throw to tie the game, and after a miss made her final three. Scaife's 3 at the buzzer was off the mark.

Amari Carter had 10 points and De'Janae Boykin had 10 rebounds for Penn State (12-8, 3-4 Big Ten).

Khadaizha Sanders led Rutgers (17-4, 5-2) with 14 points. Scaife and Stasha Carey had 10, with Carey grabbing 11 rebounds.
