THE BLUE HOSE
PC stumbled, 60-47, at Coastal Carolina on Tuesday. The Blue Hose assisted on 10 of their 13 made field goals in the game.
Petty leads the way for the Blue Hose averaging 11.3 points per game, while Allie Wagner brings in 5.3 rebounds a contest.

Aliyah Kilpatrick led Winthrop with 11 points, four assists and five steals, while Kayla Atkins pulled down nine rebounds and added seven points. Kilpatrick powers the Eagle offense with 13.7 points a game, while Arianne Whitaker pulls in 8.6 rebounds a contest.
Winthrop owns a 20-4 overall record between the two schools. The series dates back to 1978 with the Eagles taking the first 12 meetings between the two before the Blue Hose won two in a row. Winthrop then took two of its own, before PC came out on top, 63-60, February 4, 2012. The Eagles then took six straight before the Blue Hose collected a 59-48 win over Winthrop on January 12 earlier this season in Rock Hill, S.C. Three PC players scored in double figures in that game, led by Allie Wagner’s double-double, 11 points and 12 rebounds. The Blue Hose look for a season sweep of the Eagles for the first time in school history.
The Blue Hose take to the road for a 7 p.m. contest against Radford on Tuesday and will be broadcasted on ESPN 3.
