CRESSON, PA: On Saturday, January 9, Hilbert took on conference foe Mt. Aloysius where they fell in double overtime by a score of 78-80. Hilbert was lead by freshmen duo Roman Brown (Buffalo, NY/South Park) and Dan McFarland (Lancaster, NY/St. Mary’s) scoring 18 and 16 points respectively. Hilbert’s record falls to (1-11) overall and (0-7) in the AMCC.

In the first half, Mt. Aloysius led Hilbert by a score of 38-34. Heading into the second half play remained even between both teams. After trailing for the majority of the half, Hilbert came from behind to tie the game with :19 seconds left off a lay up from sophomore forward Nick Piccone (North Chili, NY/ Aquinas). The lay up would send the game into overtime.

Hilbert took the lead in overtime for the first two minutes of the period. With 1:47 remaining Hilbert would regain the lead off a Roman Brown lay up from a Dan McFarland assist. With :14 seconds remaining Clark Harold from Mt. Aloysius was sent to the free throw line making both free throws sending the game into double overtime.
 
In the second overtime, Mt. Aloysius took a 76-75 with 1:16 remaining. This would be the final lead change of the game resulting in an 80-78 Mt. Aloysius victory.
 
This is Hilbert’s second consecutive overtime defeat to an AMCC opponent this week.
 
The Hawks return home to the Hafner Recreation Center on January, 13 as they face AMCC opponent Penn State Behrend at 8:00pm.
