BRADFORD, Pa. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will head to Hilbert for the second meeting of the season Wednesday for an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference matchup.

Hilbert and Pitt-Bradford both hold conference leading three-game winning streaks as the Panthers look to avenge a narrow 68-64 loss to the Hawks at the KOA Arena on Nov. 29.

Saturday, the Panthers picked up their third-straight victory in dominant fashion, 75-56, over Pitt-Greensburg. 

Jennifer Isenberg led the way with her sixth double-double of the season with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Ali Rinfrette scored 18, Shaelyn Snipes had 13 and Etreece Adams scored 11 to round out the Panthers scoring in double-figures.

For Adams, her 11 points set a new career-high.

During the Panthers' three-game win streak, Pitt-Bradford has won its games by an average 17.3 points per game.

With 21.7 points per game, Rinfrette continues to lead the conference in scoring as the lone player to average over 20 points per game. Her scoring average ranks 12 nationally. 

The Bradford, Pa., native is also the top three-point shooter in the conference at 39.1 percent.

Isenberg has emerged as a powerful weapon both scoring the ball and on the glass, earning six double-doubles of points and rebounds so far this season, which is tied for 53rd nationally. The junior has scored in double-figures in five-straight games and now averages 12.5 points per game. Her 8.8 rebounds per game rank fourth in the conference.

Snipes has elevated her offensive game as of late, scoring in double-figures in four of her last five games to raise her scoring average to 10.6 points per game.

Adams has become a mainstay on the floor, playing over 28 minutes in each of the last four games. In her last five games, she has raised her rebounding average from 4.4 boards per game to her current 6.3 rebounds per game.

Wednesday's game will begin at 8 p.m., serving as the second game of a double-header with the men's game coming first.
