Seton Hill University women's basketball team stretched its winning streak to seven with a 71-61 victory over Notre Dame (Ohio) on Saturday.

After an 0-4 start to the season, the Griffins are 7-4 heading into Saturday's scheduled West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference game against visiting Wheeling Jesuit.

Junior forward Katie Gattuso led Seton Hill with 16 points and 16 rebounds, her seventh double-double of the season. She also added five assists.

Monday, she was named the WVIAC Player of the Week.

UPG sets records

Pitt-Greensburg sizzled in the men's basketball consolation game of the Bluffton (Ohio) Holiday Tournament on Saturday and came away with a 130-58 rout of Wright State-Lake.

UPG (4-8) set a tournament record for points in a game and established single-game school marks for 3-pointers made (18) and assists (42) in ending a five-game losing streak.

The Bobcats shot 61.3 percent (49 for 80), including 58.1 (18 for 31) from 3-point range. A total of seven players scored in double figures, led by sophomore guard Brian Heinle's 19 points.

“To score that many points with not one player scoring over 20 points, plus assisting on 42 of 49 field goals, shows we really did a good job of sharing the ball,” UPG coach Sean Strickland said.

UPG dropped a 90-50 decision to Ohio Wesleyan in the tournament opener Friday. The Bobcats play Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference opponents D'Youville on Saturday and Medaille on Sunday.
