Penn State has moved on from "sad" circumstances

With all the attention generated by the sexual abuse claims after former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, there have been some trying times in the athletic department at Penn State in recent months.

The women's basketball team, which will play UConn tomorrow in the Kingston (R.I.) Region semifinals, were among those in the Penn State community impacted by the events taking place inside the athletic department.

"It was sad," sophomore guard and leading scorer Maggie Lucas said. "Everything. Football, Joe Paterno (who died in January), it meant a lot to our university. It means a lot to our university still. We were all on the outside because we where just told to stay away from what was going on because it was negative. It was just sad but our university is strong and bounces back."

Alex Bentley, Penn State's junior point guard, had a different take on things.

I think a lot of students did positive things that weren't shown in the media," Bentley said. "There were a lot of things that the media didn't catch that students were doing positively. They kind of just wanted to hint at the negative things."
