washingtonpost.com – The Niagara University women’s basketball team lost its second game of the season Monday night against the University of Pittsburgh. Although the team took an early lead, it was trounced by the Pittsburgh Panthers, 70-54. When the game ended, it was late. And the Purple Eagles were exhausted. “It was an exciting game, but didn’t turn out as we wanted it to,” Emily Granruth, a 19-year-old guard, told The Washington Post in a telephone interview late Tuesday night.
