PHILADELPHIA--After falling to division rival Princeton over the weekend, the Penn women’s basketball team will head back to the Garden State to face Seton Hall on Tuesday. Tip off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
The Quakers (3-12, 0-1) will continue to look for their first victory of the new year, but getting the W’ won’t be easy against a Seton Hall squad that only recently broke a seven-game winning streak with a loss to No. 5 Rutgers.
Penn will have its hands full containing senior guard Ela Mukosiej, who leads the Pirates’ offense with 11.4 points per contest. Junior forward Noteisha Womack has also torn up the court for Seton Hall (11-3, 2-1) with 11.2 points and 12 rebounds per game while snagging 31 steals this season.
Tuesday’s meeting will be the first between the two teams, and the Quakers will need to click on all cylinders to keep up with the athletic Pirates. After scoring a career-high 11 points and leading the team in rebounding in the loss to Princeton, Maggie Burgess could provide some much needed support for Penn on both sides of the ball.
Carrie Biemer and Kelly Scott’s offensive production will also continue to be critical to Penn’s success. Biemer leads the team with 12.5 points per game, while Scott is chipping in with 11.7 points per contest this season.
