FROSTBURG, MD: The Hilbert College men’s basketball game at Frostburg State University on Saturday, February 20 was the last time the Hawks have to travel to Maryland for a conference game ever again. Three of the Hilbert freshmen took one last stab at Frostburg before they leave the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (for the Capital Athletic Conference), but their individual efforts weren’t enough to secure the win for the Hawks. The Bobcats clawed their way to a 111-76 victory ending the Hawks season at 3-22 and 2-18. As a number 4 seed (16-8, 12-7), Frostburg hosts Mount Aloysius in the first round of the AMCC play-offs on February 23.
