The Carlow women’s basketball team suffered a tough loss to Point Park University, on Tuesday evening, at Oakland Catholic High School.

The Celtics could not withstand the Pioneers’ intense full-court defensive pressure and fell, 92-66, in their annual Pink the Pavilion game.

Point Park forced Carlow to make 41 turnovers and capitalized on those by making 25 steals and scoring 33 points off turnovers.

Emma Stille (FR/Columbus, Ohio) paced the Celtics with her ninth double double of the season, and her third straight. She scored 12 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. Delaney Daly (FR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) had 10 points and four steals. Noelle Vallimont (JR/Erie, Pa.) and Reanna Turner (FR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) had seven rebounds apiece.

For Point Park, Ja’Nia McPhatter scored 17 points, Marissa Rose and Tyra James had 15 points apiece and Kaitlyn Smith had 14 points. James also made nine steals. Baylee Buleca led the Pioneers with seven rebounds and Celina DiPietro had a game-high six assists.

Proceeds from the game were donated to the Glock Foundation, founded by Carlow alumna and breast cancer survivor Carol Glock ’75. The mission of the organization is to raise funds to support breast cancer research, clinical trials, education and patient care within the Pittsburgh community.

The Celtics play at Penn State Beaver at 7:30 pm tomorrow.
