Recap | Box Score

Coach Lisa Bluder
(game thoughts)
“I thought Penn State came out and played very inspired tonight. They had something to prove about winning on the road. They played tough and I thought they were well prepared. Strom, Harris, and Wright are an amazing three.”

(on Penn State’s torrid shooting)
“They buried us from three-point range. Their usual percentage is 31 percent and they came out and shot 48 percent from three-point range.”

(on Iowa’s second-half comeback)
“The beginning of the second half was a really crucial part of the game that got away from us. I’m proud of our team and we showed a lot of fight. To get down 20 points and then get it back within two, I’m really proud of them.”

(on Iowa’s bench)
“We outscored them 30-5 from our bench. Our bench proved they were very capable.”

(on team outlook)
“We have to realize this is one loss. We have to learn from our mistakes, but we can’t be thinking about it going into Michigan State.”

Junior Johanna Solverson
(on Iowa’s second-half comeback)
“We let our defense translate into offense. We can’t get in a slump like we did. We need to play intense for 40 minutrs.”

Penn State Head Coach Rene Portland
(on Penn State’s victory)
“You live and die by the three and even I smiled at a few of them. This was a good win for us and don’t count Iowa out.”
