BRADFORD, PA – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford (5-8, 3-3) took a 24-10 lead out of the gate and wouldn’t allow the Hilbert College women’s basketball team (3-9, 2-4) to get much closer earning a 62-46 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) win.

Hilbert held the host Panthers to a chilly 27.9% from the floor, but allowed the home team to connect on 25 of 30 free throw attempts. Pitt-Bradford’s Taiasha Brown would turn in a double-double performance recording 15 points and 11 boards for the winners.

Autumn Lee-Jeffries (Buffalo, NY/Holy Angels) led Hilbert with 16 points and seven rebounds. Amanda McHale (Bradford, PA/Archbishop Walsh), who leads the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference in rebounding, pulled down nine boards, while adding 11 points in the loss.

Hilbert College continues their schedule at home against conference opponent Mount Aloysius College on Friday, January 20th. The game is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM at the Hafner Recreation Center.
