Kelsey Oddis' standout senior season at Pitt-Greensburg now includes a broken record.

The Burrell graduate set a school record by hitting seven 3-pointers in a 78-76 overtime victory over D'Youville late last month.

Oddis finished the game with 32 points and 11 rebounds, then followed that by scoring 20 points and pulling down 12 rebounds in a 62-57 win over Penn State Behrend.

For the season, Oddis is averaging 19.8 points per game, which would be the highest mark in school history if she can sustain it through the end of the season.

She also is pulling down 10.9 rebounds per game.
