BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford men's basketball team will welcome Mount Aloysius for an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference matchup Saturday afternoon at the KOA Arena. 

Saturday's action will be the first for the Panthers since Dec. 9 after spending the week wrapping up the 2017 Fall semester with final exams.

Pitt-Bradford suffered a 65-56 setback in its most recent contest on Dec. 9 at Franciscan.

Colby Mills went off for the Panthers, connecting on six three-pointers on 11 attempts for 24 points to lead all scorers.

Christian Kelly-Perkins put together his best scoring performance of the season with 12 points, earning nine from the free-throw line.

Pitt-Bradford's top scorer is Desmond Brogsdale at 17.3 points per game. The next highest scorer is Dylan Niedermeyer at 10.6 points per game.

Niedermeyer is also the top rebounder on the Panthers – and is among the top in the AMCC as well. With 7.9 rebounds per game, Niedermeyer averages the third-most rebounds in the conference. The sophomore has scored in double-figures in five of the Panthers' seven games and has two double-doubles.

Reginald Rogers continues to serve as the Panthers' top distributor as his 3.6 per game lead the team. A workhorse, Rogers also leads Pitt-Bradford in minutes per game at 28.6 having appeared in all seven games.

Saturday's game will begin at 1 p.m. and serve as the first game of a doubleheader with the women's team.
