Sacred Heart vs. Robert Morris Post Game Notes
The win by Robert Morris snapped a two-game SHU winning streak in the series and cut the Pioneers lead in the all-time series to 10-4.
Saturday's game was played in front of a school record crowd of 1,523 fans in the William H. Pitt Center. The Pioneers broke the school record twice last season when 1,161 came out to see SHU beat Saint Francis (PA) during the regular season and then 1,406 witnessed the NEC Championship game against Quinnipiac.
The Colonials handed Sacred Heart their third loss at home this season and their second in NEC play. The Pioneers lost five games at home during the 2004-05 season, sandwiched between a pair of undefeated home seasons in 2003-04 and 2005-06.
Senior Jasmine Walker became the 12th player in school history to record 1,000 career points. Walker now has 1,001 after a season-high 21 on Saturday.
Walker's 14 rebounds puts her two behind Diane Nicholls (1987-91) for third place on the rebound list with 830.
Walker and fellow senior Amanda Pape both recorded double doubles on Saturday, the second time this season they have accomplished that feat in the same game and the fifth time in their careers. It was also the 22nd double doubles of both player's careers.
Before Saturday's game, Pape was honored with a commemorative basketball for becoming SHU's all-time leading scorer.
