The Seton Hill women’s basketball team defeated a ranked opponent for the second game in a row.

A basket by IUP’s Carolyn Appleby (Greensburg Central Catholic) gave the Crimson Hawks a 55-53 lead in the fourth quarter, but the Griffins used a late 17-2 run to pull away. Back-to-back 3s by Cecere and Marecic gave Seton Hill a lead they would not give back.
Lauren Wolosik (North Catholic) led IUP with 17 points. Appleby finished with 13.
