Rock Hill, S.C.

Winthrop University’s women’s basketball team is setting its sights on regaining its winning streak as they gear up to face the High Point Panthers this coming Saturday, January 27, 2024. The match will be set at High Point, North Carolina’s Qubein Center at 7:00 P.M. (EST). Winthrop is coming off a 63-54 home loss to Charleston Southern on Wednesday night that ended their two-game winning streak.

Background to the Upcoming Challenge

This forthcoming matchup marks the 59th affair between the Eagles, as Winthrop is known, and the High Point Panthers. High Point currently leads the series standing at a 36-22 advantage. Also, the opponent had a winning streak of seven games against the Eagles dating back to 2020. However, Winthrop University’s Squad has tasted victory at Highpoint before.
