After the game, Maryland was presented a trophy for winning the Big Ten regular-season title. The Terrapins (25-2, 16-0) clinched first place Saturday night when Ohio State beat Iowa.
That doesn't mean the Terps intend to coast to the finish in their inaugural Big Ten season. With victories over visiting Indiana on Thursday and at Northwestern on Sunday, Maryland will become only the third Big Ten women's team to go unbeaten in conference play, joining Ohio State (1984-85) and Purdue in (1998-99).
Candice Agee led Penn State (6-21, 3-13) with 10 points and Lindsey Spann added eight, but missed 12 of her 16 shots.
