STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Kelly Mazzante scored a season-high 38 points as No. 13 Penn State beat Old Dominion 81-74 Tuesday night.

Tanisha Wright added 16 points and Jess Brungo 12 for Penn State (15-4), which led by 21 with 15:42 left and withstood a 25-9 Old Dominion run to hold on.

Kim Giddens had a season-high 28 points to lead the Lady Monarchs (8-6), who were 17-for-22 from the floor in the second half and shot nearly 61 percent for the game.

Giddens, who came in averaging 5.9 points per game, hit a layup with 15:16 remaining and scored 10 points during the run that brought Old Dominion to 69-64 with 7:17 left. But the Lady Monarchs were unable to close the gap any further.

Shareese Grant scored 14 points for Old Dominion, while Okeisha Howard added 11 and Max Nhassengo 10.

Mazzante scored 26 points in the first half of her 20th career 30-point game, and finished with her highest total of the season. She was 12-for-12 from the free-throw line, one shy of the school's single-game record.
