The final score does not tell the whole story as the Panthers led by as much as 29 in the second half before both teams emptied their benches.
Pitt-Bradford built an 11-point lead midway through the first half, outscoring the Barons 14-5 over a four-minute stretch. Franciscan scored seven straight points to cut the margin to 25-21 with 4:09 left in the first half, but the Panthers responded with six consecutive points of their own to take a 31-21 halftime lead.
Evan Greening scored on the first two offensive possessions of the second half for Pitt-Bradford, and Welch connected for three straight treys to extend the Panthers’ lead to 44-25.
Welch would knock down consecutive three-pointers moments later, sending both the Pitt-Bradford bench and student section into pandemonium, to bury Franciscan for good.
The Panthers hit seven of their first nine long-range shots in the second half and finished with a season-high 10 threes.
After shooting just 38 percent from the field in the opening half, the Panthers hit 15 of 32 shots over the final 20 minutes. Pitt-Bradford outrebounded Franciscan by three and forced 20 turnovers.
Greening totaled 17 points on just 13 shots and 17 rebounds, and Welch finished with 15. Sahlil Harris added 10 points off the bench, and Fateem Brockington tallied eight points and four assists. Dylan Niedermeyer sparked the defense with five steals, and Jon Haenel recorded four.
“Overall it was a good team win,” head coach Britt Moore said. “We played better defense in the first half and then the offense got going in the second half, especially Manny [Welch].
I thought the bench played well and kept the momentum going.”
Pitt-Bradford improves to 3-3 on the season and 1-2 in the AMCC. The Panthers have the week off before traveling to Mt. Aloysius next Saturday.

The Panthers came out firing, scoring the game’s first 12 points and hitting six threes in the opening quarter, to build a 22-point lead. Pitt-Bradford led 48-22 at the break and extended its advantage to 40 at point in the third quarter behind its defense.
Franciscan went the first eight minutes of the second half without a field goal and turned the ball over seven times in the third period.
Pitt-Bradford scored a whopping 38 points off 26 Baron turnovers and netted 15 second-chance points, outrebounding Franciscan 16-5 on the offensive glass. The Panthers cooled off in the second half and finished the game shooting 38 percent. Franciscan hit on 37 percent of its attempts and was just 13 of 23 from the free throw line.
All 10 Panthers scored, led by Ali Rinfrette’s team-high 16 points and four made three-pointers. Anna Colebert chipped in with 11 points, and Kaserra Owens totaled 10. Brittany Watts narrowly missed a double-double, finishing with nine points and nine rebounds. Darien Lantz dished out a season-high nine assists, and four players recorded four steals apiece.
“I think both teams played really hard,” head coach Sean Brown Sr. said. “Our defense was really good tonight. We communicated and helped each other out the entire game.”
Brown credited the defensive effort to the play of Owens, who has slowly been building her stamina back up after missing significant time last year and the first two games of this season to an injury.
“Our defense was sparked by Kaserra Owens,” Brown Sr. said. “It’s great to have Kaserra back in the fold after battling back from a really bad injury last year.
She’s a four-year starter so it’s nice to have her back doing some of the things she’s been accustomed to doing.”
Pitt-Bradford improves to 3-5 on the season and 2-1 in the AMCC. The Panthers have the week off for finals before closing out the first half of their schedule next Saturday at Mt. Aloysius.

McKean County Emergency Management Agency EMCOMM Team to offer five-day class for the Technician Ham Radio license
Imagine a hobby that will also let you support community activities, ranging from providing communication to events like bike races to offering communication during emergencies.
That hobby is amateur -- "ham" -- radio. If you've been interested in earning an amateur radio license, your chance arrives in January in Smethport.
The McKean County Emergency Management Agency EMCOMM Team will offer a five-day class for the Technician license at the EMA/911 building, 17175 Route 6 in Smethport. The course runs on Saturdays from Jan. 21 to Feb. 25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and a review and test session is scheduled for March 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Technician license class is free, but participants must purchase the textbook, which is expected to cost about $20.
Preregistration is required by Dec. 28. That will allow organizers to purchase the correct number of textbooks and to have those available by the start of the class.
Preregister by contacting Bruce Manning, email@example.com.
The Technician license is the entry-level license for many amateur radio operators. Operators may also earn General and Amateur Extra licenses, which provide additional operating privileges. Morse Code is no longer required for any of the three licenses.
A class for the General license is expected to be scheduled later in the year.

McKean County property owners are expected to be hit by a 1 ¼-mill tax increase next year, something officials indicated they couldn't prevent, even with freezing staff hires and capital project spending.
This week, the county commissioners unveiled the proposed spending plan that calls for a general fund budget of $16,536,425.79, of which $12,602,072.58 is expected to be collected in taxes. In comparison, the 2016 general fund totals $15,981,571.14, with $11,615,480,65 listed as tax revenue.
“The county’s total real estate value was reduced due to Clean and Green rates and tax appeals,” the commissioners said in a letter attached to the proposed budget. “(An) Increase in property values of new construction was not enough to offset these values.” Read more....

BRADFORD, Pa. -- A new minor area of study at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will examine Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies.
The new minor consolidates previous minors in Gender Studies and Women’s Studies while integrating coursework addressing the topic of sexuality.
The new curriculum and introductory course, Introduction to Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies, were created by an administrative council composed of Dr. Nancy McCabe, professor of writing and program coordinator; Dr. Helma de Vries-Jordan, assistant professor of political science; Stephanie Eckstrom, coordinator of the Master of Social Work program at Pitt-Bradford; Dr. Tammy Haley, associate professor of nursing; and Dr. Tracee Howell, assistant professor of English.
Program faculty are actively engaged in research, scholarship, and writing projects linked to gender, sexuality and women’s studies.
In addition to the introductory course, students will select five additional courses from a list of nearly two dozen classes that includes choices such as Latina Writers, LGBTQ Politics and Sociology of Gender. Many courses required for the minor also satisfy general education requirements students must meet.
In general, the curriculum explores the impact of social, cultural, historic, economic, and political influences on identity, the fluidity of gender identity and sexuality, and the intersections of gender identity and sexuality with other aspects of identity.
The minor also seeks to raise awareness about the experiences, economic conditions, contributions, and human rights concerns of women and members of the LBGTQ community.
Students will be encouraged to participate in applied experiences such as service learning, internships, research, and study abroad to expose them to gender identity and sexuality in multicultural and international contexts.
“A unique aspect of the minor is that it helps to integrate identity and embrace diversity, inclusion, and global perspectives in both the curriculum and in related programming on the campus,” McCabe said.
Members of the administrative council are already involved in and will help organize events for Women’s History Month, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, National Coming Out Day, the Transgender Day of Remembrance, and Safe Zone trainings for the campus and community.
For more information on the minor, contact McCabe at 814-362-0785 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
