Lady Redhawks Squeak Out 45-44 Win Over Westminster

PITTSBURGH, PA -- La Roche Women's Basketball (4-0) overcame a seven point halftime deficit to defeat Westminster College (2-2) 45-44 in a non-conference game at the Kerr Fitness Center.

Freshman forward Jessica Pitts and senior guard Chantelle Jennings each scored ten points in the second half to rally the Lady Redhawks.

Trailing by one point with ten seconds to play, Westminster had a chance to take the lead. Huskies guard Kaitlyn McCarthy drove to the hoop but La Roche junior guard got a hand on it to force a loose ball. Both Westminster and La Roche players fought for it as time expired.

Pitts finished with 16 points and 7 rebounds. Jennings added 14 points in the win.

La Roche Women's Basketball will travel to IUP on Monday, November 29 at 7:00PM to take on the Crimson Hawks.
