FROSTBURG, MD – The Hilbert College men’s basketball team picked up an important 86-69 win at Frostburg State Saturday to move into fifth place in the highly competitive Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC). Five different Hawks reached double-figures to help the Hawks improve to 12-11 overall and 8-8 in league play.

Down by as many as seven points in the first-half, the visiting Hawks would take the lead for good on a pair of Bobby Brown (Morristown, NJ/Morristown) free throws with 2:52 remaining. Several Bobcat fouls helped the visitors get to the foul line early where the Hawks converted 10 of 13 attempts to take a 41-38 lead into the locker room.

The Hawks would score the first five points of the second-half, but the Bobcats would hang around and a three-pointer by Dale DeBerry cut the Hilbert lead to 53-49 with 15:30 remaining. Both teams would continue to trade baskets before an 8-0 run would give the Hawks some breathing room. A Michael Reyes (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon) three-pointer with 1:13 to play made it 84-66 and the Hawks were en route to the 17-point victory.

Frostburg’s (10-13, 9-7) Antione McCall led all scorers with 27 points and a game-high 11 rebounds.

Dallas Reinard (Smethport, PA/Smethport) led the Hawks with 26 points and five assists. Glen Ufland (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon) and Noah McHale (Bradford, PA/Archbishop Walsh) finished with 12 points apiece, and Brown and Tyler Blanar (Eden, NY/Eden) each chipped in with 10. On the day the Hawks connected on 22 of 27 free throws while causing 21 Bobcat turnovers.

The Hawks will travel to the University of Pitt-Bradford on Wednesday for an 8:00 pm tip-off against the Panthers.
