Pitt-Bradford Men Bounce Back, Down Bobcats

By Scott Elliott
GREENSBURG, Pa. - The Pitt-Bradford men’s basketball team bounced back Saturday, defeating Pitt-Greensburg 83-65 on the road.

The Panthers put Wednesday’s 23-point loss to Medaille behind them to win their fourth game in five tries. Pitt-Bradford struggled from the field against the Mavericks but shot 52 percent to down the Bobcats.

The Panthers went ahead for good on Jon Haenel’s three, 16-15, at the 12:44 mark of the first half, and they outscored the Bobcats 15-6 over the final eight minutes of the period to lead 42-29 at the break. Haenel had a pair of baskets to spark the run, and Manny Welch canned a three-pointer in the closing seconds to cap a half in which Pitt-Bradford hit six threes and shot 59 percent.

Fateem Brockington’s trey two minutes into the second half pushed the Panthers’ advantage to 18, and the Bobcats never threatened again.

Pitt-Bradford forced 20 turnovers, which led to 26 points, and outscored Pitt-Greensburg by 14 in the paint. The Panthers were 10-16 from the free throw line and hit seven threes in all. The Bobcats shot 42 from the floor and outrebound Pitt-Bradford by 36-34.

Evan Greening led all scorers with 28 points on 13-20 shooting, and he pulled down nine rebounds to narrowly miss out on his 13th double-double of the season. Welch finished with 13 points, and Fateem Brockington had a double-double of 11 points and 10 assists. Haenel added 11 points off the bench, and Sahlil Harris collected three steals.

Shooting Woes Continue for Panther Women

By Scott Elliott
GREENSBURG, Pa. - The Pitt-Bradford women’s basketball team’s shooting woes continued Saturday afternoon in a 75-64 loss to Pitt-Greensburg.

For the second straight game, the Panthers fell into a big hole and never climbed out of it despite forcing a season-high 33 turnovers. Pitt-Bradford shot 33 percent from the field and was just 5-23 behind the arc.

Tied at seven in the first quarter, Pitt-Greensburg outscored the Panthers 26-7 over the next 10 minutes, stretching into the second quarter, to build a commanding 19-point lead. During that span, Pitt-Bradford was 3-17 from the floor and committed four turnovers. The Panthers eventually trailed 39-21 at the break.

Pitt-Greensburg’s advantage grew to 23 in the third quarter, but nine straight points by the Panthers to end the frame trimmed the margin to 14 at 53-39.

Pitt-Bradford continued to make a late push in the final quarter, cutting the deficit to six with 1:45 remaining, but the Bobcats scored on consecutive possessions to seal the win. Pitt-Greensburg held off the Panthers’ by going 9-10 from the charity stripe over the final two minutes.

The Bobcats shot 46 percent from the field, hit 23 of 29 free throw attempts, and outrebounded the Panthers by 20. Pitt-Bradford went to the line just 16 times and surrendered 15 second-chance points.

Ali Rinfrette paced the offense with 21 points, Darien Lantz finished with 10, and Brittany Watts and Anna Colebert each had nine apiece. Kaserra Owens totaled eight rebounds and seven steals.

Bill Pekarski: Day 136, Living life on my terms

Bill Pekarski:

Day 136, Living life on my terms.

I was looking through some photos for inspiration today and I came across one of my favorites. It is a just a group of friends hanging outside on a beautiful day. They are all around 20 years old or so and the picture tells many stories.

The picture was taken outside of the music building at IUP. When the weather was nice, we used to take the lobby furniture out into the courtyard to get some fresh air. The group that is assembled in this photo is a mixture of music majors and several other fields of study, but all that matters is they are enjoying just hanging out.

Here is another observation; no one is looking at a cell phone or sending a text, they are living in the moment with the people who are around them at the time. This is something that the youth today seems to overlook. I would challenge anyone to watch a group of 3 or more kids, let’s say anywhere between 12 and 21 years old, and see how long it takes for someone to pull out a cell phone and look at it. I would even go so far as to say at least one of them will be holding a cell phone so they can respond immediately if it beeps or vibrates.

When you look at the photo, you could almost picture the group being from a television show like “Friends.” They are young, vibrant adults and seem like they don’t have a care in the world. As far as they are concerned these might be the best days of their lives. Actually, they probably are.

Another thing I like about this photo; it isn’t staged, it just happened that we were all around and someone had a camera. The moment is frozen in time and when we look back at it now, we remember what it felt like to be there. This is an area where cell phones are handy as they can take great pictures of moments like this. I just wish that people would take their pictures and then put it away. You can always post it later, enjoy the moment because believe me, there will come a day when you wish you had those few minutes back as opposed to spending extra time uploading and not paying attention.

Here is another thing to consider; there are no drugs or alcohol involved. I know I have a ton of stories about parties and the sort, but you don’t always need a beer in your hand to have a good time. The real truth is, we spent more time like this than anything. Additionally, drugs were never a part of this group; it is just not what we were about, thankfully.

I like to think that we were also a welcoming group. We didn’t shun anyone and it would have been possible to add another 10, 20, or even 30 people to this group in a matter of minutes.

We were also there for each other whenever needed. That is something that I don’t think will ever change. If someone in the group was hurting, you did everything within your power to help them and be that shoulder they needed to lean or cry on. That ideal is as important today as it was back then. Different people in the group have been known to drive great distances at a moment’s notice to be there for someone who is in need.

Sadly, I don’t get to see these people as often as I would like. When we do get together however, the conversation doesn’t stop and we could go on for hours. By the end it will feel like we were never even apart. It is a testament to true friendship.

So what am I trying to say? I guess I want to let young people know that just because you have access to instant technology and information, don’t let it get in the way of enjoying the company of others when you are together. Go ahead and take some photos, but then put the phone away. Make some memories that you can cherish, make your life extraordinary, and live in the moment.

Today I want to dedicate my progress to everyone pictured below. Take a look at it for a while and see what it makes you think about. If it brings up a memory, please comment and let me know about it. After all, the reason I write is to inspire and to remember.

The latest news from the State Capitol 
Changes - Under a new law aimed at improving customer convenience, consumers will be able to buy six-packs and refillable growlers at the state’s beer distributorships starting this Saturday.

The law also allows retail licensees to start selling on Sundays at 9 a.m. instead of 11 a.m.; permits a person licensed by another state to apply for a “malt or brewed beverage shipper license,” which allows the direct shipment of up to 192 fluid ounces of beer to be delivered to a customer per month, though only 96 fluid ounces of a specific brand of beer may be shipped per year to an adult resident; and allows liquor to be sold (in shatterproof containers) before, during and after professional and amateur athletic events in the same manner that is currently permitted for the sale of malt or brewed beverages.

The new law is the latest in a series of steps taken by lawmakers to make beer, wine and liquor sales more convenient to consumers. Among the most changes was allowing the sale of wine at approved grocery stores.
Investments In Our Communities - The City of DuBois has received $700,000 in federal money to extend the walkway and provide bus pull off areas along Beaver Drive in the Industrial Park. The funds are derived from Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), which was created to build on many of the highway, transit, bike, and pedestrian programs and policies established in 1991.
Help with Home Energy Bills - Residents who are struggling with their home heating bills can apply for assistance from the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) this winter.

LIHEAP is a federally funded program that helps individuals and families pay their heating bills through home heating energy assistance grants. It also provides crisis grants to help in the event of an emergency or if a resident is in danger of losing his or her heat due to broken equipment, lack of fuel or termination of utility service.

The income eligibility guidelines for LIHEAP are set at 150 percent of the federal poverty level income. For an individual, the income limit is $17,820; for a couple, the limit is $24,030; and for a family of four, it is $36,450.

Residents may apply for LIHEAP online or by contacting the County Assistance Office in their county of residence. Click here for details.
Attention Hunters - The Pennsylvania Game Commission is hosting a two-day hunter training course on Monday, April 3, and Tuesday, April 11, at the Kane Fish and Game Sportsman's Club, Dwight Road, Kane. The course is required by law for all first-time hunters and trappers before they can purchase a license.
