Rider triumphs

over Pitt women

PITTSBURGH – Pitt sophomore Brianna Kiesel had 12 of her 17 points in the second half, but it was not enough as the Panthers dropped a 65-48 decision to Rider on Sunday afternoon at the Petersen Events Center.

The contest marked the sixth annual Hometown vs. Hunger contest as fans donated non-perishable goods for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

Junior Asia Logan had 12 points and 13 rebounds, her fourth career double-double. Logan has recorded double-digit rebounding totals in five games this season for the Panthers (6-4).

Rider (5-4) was paced by 20 points from senior guard Sironda Chambers, who also drained three of the Broncs’ four 3-pointers.

A long jumper from the left side by Ashlee Anderson gave Pitt a

9-2 edge at the 15:22 mark. The Panthers converted four of their first eight shots of the game, but from that point the offense stalled.

Pitt made just four of the its remaining 23 shots of the first half.

Rider took advantage of the missed shots and the 10 Pitt turnovers, taking its first lead at the 1:48 mark of the first period on a three-point play from Carleigh Brown.

The Panthers drained two of their final three shots of the stanza to make it a two-point game (24-22) at intermission.

Pitt tied the game three times in the first 3:45 of the second half. A layup and subsequent free throw from sophomore Chyna Golden tied the score at 32-32 with 16:16 showing.

Penn Highlands scores victory

Penn Highlands defeated the Community College of Baltimore County-Dundalk 71-66 in Maryland. 

Three Black Bears finished with double-doubles, led by Rashaud Kelley’s 18 points and 12 rebounds, Josh Corbett’s 12 points and 11 rebounds, and Larry Rascoe’s 10 points and 10 assists.

Jordan Swauger had 16 points while Grant Speigle contributed nine points and 13 rebounds.

Penn Highlands is 3-5. The Black Bears are idle until they host their first home game of the season on Jan. 10 against Pitt-Titusville.
