UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – After a 2016-17 season that earned her All-America honors, junior Teniya Page (Chicago, Ill.) was named to the preseason All-Big Ten squads by both the coaches and media panels, as announced by the conference offices on Monday (Oct. 23).

Two 10-person all-conference teams were chosen, one by the Big Ten head coaches and the other selected by a panel of media members. Each panel also ranked their top three teams. Complete Preseason All-Big Ten rankings and teams are listed below.

Page capped her sophomore season with an All-America honorable mention nod from the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). She is the ninth different Lady Lion – 14th total selection – to earn All-America honors from WBCA and just the second sophomore to earn that recognition. She became just the fourth Lady Lion sophomore to earn a consensus All-Big Ten first team selection, garnering the distinction from both the coaches and media.

With her Penn State Big Ten Tournament record 35 points vs. Minnesota on March 2, Page moved herself into the conversation as one of the most prolific players in Penn State history. She became just the fourth Lady Lion to reach the 1,000-point mark by the end of her sophomore season, a club includes Page, Maggie Lucas, Kelly Mazzante and Susan Robinson. She ended the season with 1,091 career points and is tied for No. 32 on the career scoring charts.

Among other career rankings for Page, she became the 15th player to make 100 career 3-pointers, one of 19 Penn Stater’s to pile up at least 1,000 points and 200 assists and sits among the top free throw shooters in program history at .777 to rank No. 18 all-time. Page’s five career 30-point games currently rank No. 4 all-time at Penn State.

In 2016-17, the Chicago native became the first Lady Lion to make 200 field goals, 60 3-pointers and 100 free throws, while also handing out 100 assists, in a single season in program history.


 

 

Page was the ninth Lady Lion to score 600-plus points in a single season with 618 points during her 2016-17 campaign, reaching double-figures in 30-of-32 games played. Of her 30 games in double-digits, she registered 15 20-point games, including four 30-point efforts. Her point total ranks No. 4 on the single season sophomore charts and No. 9 on the all-class season charts. Her 19.9 points per game ranks No. 7 in a single season at PSU.
