Lady Lions vs. Delaware State (9).psd

Guard Maddie Burke (15) attempts to shoot the ball during Penn State women’s basketball against Delaware State University at the Bryce Jordan Center on Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2021. The Lady Lions beat the Hornets 120-51.

Penn State will be losing one of its top sharpshooters for next season.

Guard Maddie Burke announced on Instagram that she will be transferring to Villanova.

Burke had a great start to her blue and white career as she was named the Big Ten Sixth Player of the Year during her freshman season, but she followed that up by averaging just 2.8 points this past season.

The Doylestown, Pennsylvania, native will get the chance to stay instate and join a Wildcat team which finished 24-9 last season, making it to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
