HAMBURG, NY:  On Wednesday night the Hilbert women’s basketball team hosted Medaille College in the Hafner Gymnasium. Medaille entered the contest with a flawless AMCC record of 12-0. The Mavericks continued to remain perfect in the conference, defeating Hilbert 86-17. The Hawks were led by sophomore guard Mary Zinni (Batavia, NY/ Batavia) who tallied 7 points and freshman guard Dontrell Young (Rochester, NY/Charles Finney) {in photo to the right} pulled down 7 rebounds. The Hawks record drops to 0-18 on the season and 0-13 in the AMCC.

First half action saw the Mavericks set a fast paced tempo, taking a nine point lead just two minutes into the game. The Hawks would cut the lead to six with a three pointer by sophomore guard Amanda Dudek (Tonawanda, NY/ Tonawanda), but Medaille would continue to push the ball up and down the court creating a 27 point lead at the half.
The Mavericks would remain too much for the Hawks to handle as they would score 47 more points in the second half resulting in the 86-17 Medaille victory. Jordan Schrimmel led all scores for Medaille recording 14 points in 27 minutes of action.
The Hawks will play two more conference opponents over the weekend hosting back to back contests against Penn State Altoona as well as Franciscan University. Hilbert will face Penn State Altoona on January 30, at 1 p.m. and Franciscan University on January 31, at 2 p.m.
