BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford women's basketball team will return home Saturday for Senior Day, hosting Penn State-Behrend for an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference game.

Prior to tipoff, the Panthers' lone senior Ali Rinfrette will be honored for her four years as a Pitt-Bradford student-athlete for Senior Day.

Entering Saturday, Rinfrette has 1,974 career points – 26 points shy of becoming the first 2,000-point scorer in Pitt-Bradford women's basketball history.

The reigning AMCC Player of the Week leads the conference with 21.9 points per game, which also ranks 10th nationally.

The Panthers are coming off earning the season sweep of Medaille on Wednesday.

Rinfrette scored 34 points to lead all scorers, accounting for more than half of the Panthers' total points.

Jennifer Isenberg collected 10 rebounds and Etreece Adams scored eight points and grabbed as many rebounds.

With the win, the Panthers stand alone in third place in the AMCC at 9-6. Medaille and Pitt-Bradford entered Wednesday in a three-way tie with La Roche for third.
