BRADFORD, Pa. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford women's basketball team will welcome Franciscan to the KOA Arena Monday for an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference matchup.

Monday's contest is a make-up game from the Jan. 19 contest that was postponed due to severe winter weather.

Pitt-Bradford is most recently coming off a narrow 54-50 defeat at Mount Aloysius that dropped the Panthers to 7-8 in AMCC action, which puts them in a tie for fifth place heading into the final week of the regular season.

Saturday, Jennifer Isenberg led the team with a double-double of 12 points and 11 boards while Etreece Adams was one board shy of a double-double with 12 points and nine rebounds.

Shaelyn Snipes played all 40 mins and scored 11 points.

Earlier this season, Pitt-Bradford traveled down to Franciscan on Dec. 15 and came away with a 77-51 victory.

Latifah Cain and Adams led the Panthers with 17 points apiece.

Franciscan comes to the KOA Arena with a 2-19 overall mark and a 2-13 record in conference play. The Barons are on a five-game skid as their two wins came consecutively against Penn State-Behrend (Jan. 12) and against Penn State-Altoona (Jan. 16).

Angela Starre is the team's leading scorer with 11.7 points per game. Raegan Stead drops 10.3 points per game while Abby Baierl is also in double-figures with 10.0 points per game.

Pitt-Bradford will stay home at the KOA Arena for the remainder of the season as the Panthers will host Penn State-Altoona Wednesday and Penn State-Behrend Saturday to wrap up its regular season.

Monday's game is set for a 4 p.m. start. It will be the first part of a doubleheader with the men's game coming after at 6 p.m.
