YORK, PA (February 18, 2017) - The number one seeded Penn State Lehigh Valley Women's Basketball team got shocked on Saturday afternoon when #4 PSU Brandywine handed Lehigh Valley there first conference loss of the season by downing LV, 82-70, in the semi-finals of the PSUAC tournament.
Lehigh Valley came into the tournament without a loss in conference play, going a perfect 14-0 in regular season and not losing a game since end of December. Brandywine shot a season-high 15-24 from 3 point land and outrebounded Lehigh Valley 51-33. Brandywine held a slight 1 point lead at halftime, thanks to an Andrea Watkins 3 point shot to go in the locker room, 39-38, but Brandywine's hot shooting would continue in the 3rd quarter. Lehigh Valley would cut the deficit to 9 points in the 4th but could never string together enough runs to advance to the championship game.
Lehigh Valley's overall record is 19-3 and will await an at-large bid to the USCAA National Tournament. The selection show is slated for 5 PM on Tuesday. The tournament begins on March 1st in Uniontown, PA.
