Taking one day at a time in Big Ten

Penn State is 3-1 in Big Ten play and heads to Michigan State on Sunday.

With the Big Ten season well under way -- we are four games in -- it is clear the conference is going to be a battle. One of the reasons I love playing in this conference so much is because of the strength of the teams, top to bottom. Just three games into Big Ten play, only one team has an unbeaten record, which shows just how competitive this league is.

It doesn’t matter who you are playing, home or away, any team has the ability to win on any given day. There seems to be some sort of rivalry between every team in the Big Ten, and with the new teams set to join the conference next season, I am excited to see new rivalries form.

We are 3-1 in conference play and most recently beat Ohio State at home. I continue to enjoy every chance I get to play at Bryce Jordan Center in front of the Penn State fans and my family.

This weekend we will be traveling to Michigan State, which sits at the top of the Big Ten standings and is the only unbeaten team that I mentioned earlier.

The most important point of focus during the long, grueling conference schedule is to take one day at a time and continue to grow as a team and improve.

Wish us luck on the road and I will be checking back in next week. You can follow me on Twitter @maggielucas33 or the Lady Lions @pennstatewbb.
