BRADFORD, Pa. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford women's basketball team will host Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference first-place Hilbert Thursday at the KOA Arena.

The contest is a make-up date for the previously scheduled Jan. 30 game that was postponed due to severe winter weather.

Pitt-Bradford enters Thursday's contest with a 7-6 AMCC record and 8-10 overall mark, which is good for fourth place in the conference. Hilbert entered the week atop the conference at 11-2 in conference play and 16-4 overall, but a loss Wednesday against Medaille dropped the Hawks to 11-3 and moved them to second place behind the 12-3 La Roche.

The Hawks will play games on back-to-back days because of the schedule change, hosting Medaille Wednesday evening.

Pitt-Bradford is coming off a hard-fought 68-63 road win at D'Youville Monday, completing the season sweep of the Spartans.

Latifah Cain recorded her first career double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. The freshman is averaging 16.2 points per game in the last five games to lead the Pitt-Bradford scoring efforts.

Additionally, Jennifer Isenberg has been the team's top player in AMCC action averaging 14.7 points per game and 7.9 boards per game.

Heading into the mid-week slate of games, Hilbert's Taylor Corts is fourth in the conference averaging 15.8 points per game. Ashley Repine owns the top field goal percentage in the nation at 52.7 percent.

Katelyn Proy is still the nation's top shot blocker averaging 3.5 blocks per game. She's second nationally with 70 total blocks -- just one shy from the nation's lead. Additionally, her 9.3 rebounds per game and 47.3 field goal percentage both rank fourth in the conference.

The AMCC has named the matchup its Game of the Week.

Thursday's game is set for a 6 p.m. tip.
