Hamburg, NY – Ricky Reed had the hot hand for Medaille College as he led his Mavericks in a 83-54 road win February 3 against Hilbert College in men’s basketball. The senior from Rochester, NY shot 7-10 from the field, 2-3 behind the arc and 3-4 at the foul line scoring 19 points (2 steals, 3 assists) to force a three-way tie for first place in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (12-2 and 16-5 overall). Sophomore Dan McFarland’s 14 points were high for the Hawks in their ninth conference loss in thirteen tries. 

Medaille opened the game scoring seven straight points before McFarland (Lancaster, NY/St. Mary’s) put the Hawks on the board. His three points off a traditional three-point play were as close as the Hawks would get all night. With a 44-22 lead at intermission, Medaille had control of the game and changed up their defenses to keep the Hawks out of any rhythm on offense in the second half. At 15:11, Chris Parrott’s (Warsaw, NY/Warsaw) jumper closed the gap to nineteen, but Tyler Stevens hit two back to back three-point bombs to kill any comeback ideas by the Hawks.  The Mavericks fifty-two percent field goal percentage (9-21 from long distance) made it difficult for Hilbert defend and their frustration increased even more when Medaille shot 20-26 from the charity stripe.

Hilbert (4-9, 7-13) travels to Steubenville, OH on Saturday, February 5 when they look sweep the Barons after taking the first match 75-52 in early January.
