PITTSBURGH, PA - The Hilbert women’s basketball team rebounded from a tough loss on Friday night when they played Penn State Greater Allegheny on November 21 in the consolation game of the 3rd Annual Chatham University tournament. PS-Greater Allegheny’s victory (64-58) was won at the foul line but the Hawks were in the game and the outcome could have gone either way. Chatham University finished the weekend 2-0 after beating Ursuline College (69-51) in the championship game of the Tip-Off Tournament benefitting the American Cancer Society and Coaches vs. Cancer.
