BRADFORD, Pa. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford men's basketball team will travel to Hilbert for a rematch with the Hawks Wednesday as an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference matchup.

Pitt-Bradford is looking to avenge the 90-73 loss at the hands of Hilbert on Nov. 29 in their conference opener. Desmond Brogsdale led the way for the Panthers with 16 points in the two teams' first meeting.

The Panthers are coming off a tough home loss to Pitt-Greensburg Saturday in which they led at halftime but ultimately fell, 86-74.

Christian Kelly-Perkins led all scorers with 24 points.

Dylan Niedermeyer recorded his fourth double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Also scoring in double-figures for the Panthers was Dylan Mitchell with a season-high 16 and Reggie Rogers with 10.

In total, the Panthers won the rebounding battle, 35-31. In addition to Niedermeyer's 10 boards, Mitchell finished with six.  Pitt-Bradford held Pitt-Greensburg to just three offensive rebounds while grabbing 13 themselves.

Rogers dished out a game-leading eight assists.

Pitt-Bradford knocked down nine three-pointers, four from Kelly-Perkins.

Kelly-Perkins' 10 field goals made is the second-most a Panther has made this season in a single game. He holds the most -- 12 at Penn State-Altoona (Jan. 3).

Brogsdale continues to lead the Panthers in scoring with 13.5 points per game.

At 7.2 rebounds per game, Niedermeyer is the fifth-best rebounder in the AMCC.

Wednesday's game will begin at 6 p.m. as the first game of a doubleheader with the women's game following at 8 p.m.
