BRADFORD, Pa. - Despite holding a 37-32 lead at the half, the Pitt Greensburg women's basketball team fell on the road Saturday to branch campus rival Pitt-Bradford.
Saturday would have a silver lining though with senior guard, Emily Nelson becoming the program's 11th 1000 point scorer.
Nelson, a Hempfield graduate, joins former teammates Kayla Damesand Morgan Biddle who both accomplished the feat during the 2014-15 season.
She currently resides in 11th place all-time in the UPG record books with 1001 points, but with six regular season games and playoffs remaining, Nelson has the chance to move up the top 10 scorers.
The Bobcats sit in fifth place in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference after the loss with an even 6-6 mark while posting an 8-11 overall record.
The second place Panthers improve to 10-2 in conference action and 14-5 on the year.
