GREENSBURG, Pa. - With 3:53 remaining in the first half and the Bobcats trailing 27-26, Mike Connelly drained one of his many career threes. He'd give Pitt-Greensburg a two-point advantage and etch his name in the UPG record book, netting his 1000th point in the process.
Connelly would ride the emotion the rest of the way out, scoring a game-high 24 points to help the Bobcats edge Medaille by a 75-69 score.
Connelly, a St. Joseph graduate, is the third member of the 2016 graduating class to reach the 1000 point milestone, joining Jerell Figueroa (Dover, PA, Dover Area) who accomplished the feat earlier this season and Rocco Contristano (Pittsburgh, PA, Keystone Oaks)whose 1000th came during the 14-15 playoff run.
