Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Maggie Lucas scored 19 points and No. 8 Penn State held Division II California, Pa., to 18% shooting in a 95-39 win in an exhibition game Saturday.

Nikki Greene added 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Lady Lions, the preseason pick to win the Big Ten.

California was limited to just 12 of 72 shooting, and the Lady Lions collected 17 steals while forcing 27 turnovers.

The Vulcans' high point was a 3-2 lead 19 seconds into the game on an open 3 from the corner by Stephanie Michael, who finished with 11 points.

But it was all the Lady Lions from there. The Lady Lions carried a 48-23 lead into the break and went on an 11-2 run to start the second half.

California was coached by former Penn State point guard Jess Strom.
