Adrienne Webb scored a career-high 29 points, including two crucial free throws with 22 seconds left, and LSU beat third-seeded Penn State 71-66 in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Tuesday night in Baton Rouge, La.
LSU next meets Cal on Saturday in the Spokane Regional semifinals.
Bianca Lutley overcame foul trouble and capped an 18-point night with a tough floater in traffic in the final minute to give LSU the lead and another key free throw to make it a four-point game with 8.3 seconds to go.
Webb, a senior, was 10 of 16 in what would have been her last game had No. 6 seed LSU (22-11) lost. Instead, she carried LSU to the Sweet 16 on a night when the Lady Tigers had only seven available players.
The loss by Penn State (26-6) meant all four No. 3 seeds were out of the tournament.
