Hamburg, NY - Hilbert’s Chris Hoak (Hamburg, NY/St. Francis) hit the game winner in the third overtime period with .2 seconds left to secure the 85-83 victory for the men’s basketball team November 23 over Oberlin College. The extra 15 minutes of play was costly for the Yoemen as they lost two key players to foul trouble after the 40 minute game ended in a 61-61 tie. Hilbert improves to 2-2 while Oberlin heads back to Ohio with a 1-1 record.
