BRADFORD, PA. - The Penn State DuBois Women's Basketball team had their first game of the season Thursday night as they were narrowly bested by Pitt-Bradford 73-63. Veteran floor leaders Lexey Schick and Cierra O'Shell looked to bring a lot of energy for the start of the season.
Pitt-Bradford started out strong, taking a 24-12 lead in the first quarter. The DuBois defense stepped up in the second quarter however, holding Pitt-Bradford to 9 points in the quarter. DuBois would go into the locker room at the half down 33-19.
The Lady Lions from DuBois came alive in the second half as they scored more in the third quarter than the entire first half. With 22 points in both ending quarters, DuBois made a strong push to put Pitt-Bradford back on their heels. The comeback surge was too little too late though, and DuBois would take their first loss of the season.
DuBois will travel to Shenango on Tuesday, November 16, for a PSUAC matchup at 6:00 p.m.
