Webb lifts LSU women to upset of Penn State

BATON ROUGE, La. — Adrienne Webb scored a career-high 29 points, including two crucial free throws with 22 seconds left, and LSU beat third-seeded Penn State 71-66 in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Tuesday night.

Bianca Lutley overcame foul trouble and capped an 18-point night with a tough floater in traffic in the final minute to give LSU the lead and another key free throw to make it a four-point game with 8.3 seconds to go.

Webb, a senior, was 10 of 16 in what would have been her last game had No. 6 seed LSU (22-11) lost. Instead, she carried LSU to the Spokane Regional semifinal on a night when the Lady Tigers had only seven available players.

Nikki Greene scored 16 points and Alex Bentley 14 for Penn State (26-6), whose loss meant all four No. 3 seeds were out of the tournament.

LSU next meets California on Saturday.
