PITTSBURGH - The University of Pittsburgh women's basketball team will host its seventh annual `Pink the Petersen' game to help the fight against breast cancer and will also honor its three graduating seniors this Sunday when the Panthers take on Clemson University at 2 p.m.
Pink The Petersen:
The Panthers have once against teamed up with Susan G. Koman Pittsburgh, UPMC Health Plan and the Play 4 Kay initiative to help the fight against the world's most commonly diagnosed form of cancer. There will be multiple promotions and activities throughout the day to enhance the fan experience. The Panthers will donate $1 from every ticket sold to Susan G. Koman Pittsburgh and Play 4 Kay.
Ashlee Anderson, Marquel Davis and Asia Logan will be honored prior to the start of the game against the Tigers. The three seniors are seeing their playing careers come to an end and will play the final home game of their careers on Thursday, February 27th against NC State.
Anderson has played in the most games of any active Pitt player with 116 appearances. She has compiled over 800 career points and scored a career-best 29 against Saint Francis (Pa.) on November, 15 2011. She has already earned one degree in communications and is working towards a second degree in media and professional communications.
Davis has appeared in 110 games and has scored over 600 points in her four years. Davis scored a career-high 26 points against Central Michigan on November 20, 2011 and she has two 20+ point performances this season. Davis currently ranks 9th in the ACC in the shooting percentage during conference play. Like Anderson, Davis is working towards her second degree in media and professional communications.
Logan has played in 102 career games and has scored more than 900 career points. She set a Petersen Events Center record with a career-high 36 points last season against William & Mary on November 11, 2012. Logan ranks 16th in the ACC in rebounding at 6.6 per game and has almost 500 rebounds for her career. Logan is working toward a degree in administration of justice and a minor in legal studies.
Panthers Seeking Redemption:
The Panthers will look to avenge a 77-67 loss to Clemson which they suffered on January 12, 2014 at Clemson. The Tigers received a career-high 29 points from Nikki Dixon in that contest to propel Clemson past Pitt. Brianna Kiesel scored 21 points to lead the Panthers and Davis pitched in with 13.
Pitt will take to the road for its next two games after Clemson, starting with a trip to Blacksburg, Va. to face Virginia Tech. The Panthers will then head to Syracuse N.Y. for a contest with the Orange on Sunday, February 23.
