BRADFORD, PA – Pitt-Bradford’s Cassandra Wilson led three Lady Panthers in double figures with 16 points, as the Hilbert College women’s basketball team struggled on the road, falling to the University of Pitt-Bradford 55-39. The Hawks record falls to 6-12 on the season, and 4-8 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC). Pitt-Bradford ups their record to 8-11, 6-6 in the AMCC.
The Hawks were terrific on the defensive end, holding the Panthers to 23.6% shooting for the game. The key to the game, however, was Pitt-Bradford’s dominance on the boards, as they outrebounded Hilbert 67-40. The 67 rebounds set a University of Pitt-Bradford school record, eclipsing the previous best, 65, set in 1995.
