BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford men's basketball team will play its second-straight road game Wednesday as it travels to Medaille for an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference game.

Pitt-Bradford is looking to avenge an 82-66 loss to Medaille at the KOA Arena on Jan. 10.

Sahlil Harris scored a team-leading 14 points while blocking four shots and grabbing a pair of steals in 21 minutes on the floor.

Desmond Brogsdale and Dylan Niedermeyer had 12 points apiece, and Colby Mills knocked down three three-pointers while scoring 11 points.

Brogsdale and Niedermeyer each pulled down nine boards to lead the Panthers.

Pitt-Bradford is coming off a narrow 57-52 loss at Mount Aloysius Saturday. The Panthers held the lead at halftime and the game went down to the wire, but the Mounties eventually came out on top.

Niedermeyer led the way with 16 points while Harris scored 11.

Prior to Saturday's game, the Panthers picked up a thrilling 81-79 win over D'Youville Wednesday.

Christian Kelly-Perkins, the team's leading scorer at 11.9 points per game, entered Wednesday's contest needing 22 points to reach 1,000 for his collegiate career. He got that -- and then some – as he tied his career high with 31 points.

Niedermeyer is the team's leading rebounder at 6.4 boards per game. He also scores in double-figures with 10.5 points per game.

Reggie Rogers leads the team with 3.5 assists per game, the seventh-best average in the AMCC.

Wednesday's game is set to begin at 6 p.m.
