Pitt-Bradford To Host Penn State-Behrend Saturday For Senior Day

BRADFORD, Pa. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford women's basketball team is set to wrap up its 2018-19 regular season Saturday hosting Penn State-Behrend at the KOA Arena for Senior Day.

Prior to the start of the game, Pitt-Bradford will honor Jennifer Isenberg and Etreece Adams for Senior Day.

Saturday's slate of games will be crucial in determining the outcomes of the AMCC standings and playoff picture as a handful of teams stand separated by a single game.

Pitt-Bradford enters the game with a 9-8 record in conference play, which is good for fourth in the AMCC.

Penn State-Altoona holds third place at 10-7 while Penn State-Behrend and Mount Aloysius sit tied for fifth and sixth place at 8-9.

Pitt-Bradford and Penn State-Behrend met earlier this season on Dec. 1 and the Panthers pulled out the road win, 62-52.

The Panthers enter Saturday having strung together wins in their last two games, most recently an 88-55 victory over Penn State-Altoona Wednesday at the KOA Arena.

Jennifer Isenberg led all scorers with 24 points while Shirleah Ragin and Shaelyn Snipes had 14 points each.

Etreece Adams recorded a double-double of 10 points and 10 boards.

Latifah Cain chipped in 11 points despite early foul trouble, as all five Panther starters scored in double-figures.

The Panthers stormed out to an early lead and never looked back, at one point holding a 25-5 advantage in the first quarter.

The Panther defense forced 17 Penn State-Altoona turnovers and held the Lions to 5-23 (21.7 percent) shooting on three-point field goals.

Pitt-Bradford also dominated the glass, pulling in 50 boards while Altoona grabbed just 38.

Snipes grabbed nine rebounds while Isenberg collected eight to aid the Panthers' rebounding effort.

Isenberg, Cain and Snipes dished six assists apiece.

Cain led the team with five steals and Adams blocked two shots.

As a team, Pitt-Bradford hit six three-pointers.

Penn State-Behrend is led by Caitlin Carnuche and Alanna Dibble offensively, who both average around 10 points per game. Dibble's 50.8 shot percentage is the third best in the AMCC while Kourtney Beamesderfer remains one of the top three-point shooters in the conference shooting 37.5 from long range in AMCC action -- the second-best percentage in the conference.

Saturday's action is set for a 2 p.m. start. Senior Day festivities will take place about 15 minutes before tipoff.
