Cresson, PA – In order to beat Mount Aloysius College men’s basketball team on their home court, the visiting team must be able to defend the three-point line. Hilbert College found that out on January 15th in their 95-85 loss to the Mounties. The Hawks finished the game with better shooting percentages from the floor and foul line, and out-rebounded MAC (38-33). But, Mount Aloysius outscored the blue and white by twenty-seven points from behind the three-point line to earn their first AMCC victory (1-7, 3-10 overall). Hilbert went to the locker room down 52-38 after MAC rode a 10 for19 shooting spree from long range in the first half. The Hawks fought back the next twenty minutes closing the gap as close as seven points on several occasions, but Mount Aloysius finished the game hitting three-pointers or foul shots to seal the win.
Mount Aloysius’ Joey Stephenson had game high honors with 26 points (8-14 behind the arc).
Leading five Hawks in double-digit scoring was Dan McFarland (Lancaster, NY/St. Mary’s) with 25 points. Chris Parrot (Warsaw, NY/Warsaw) shot fifty-percent from the floor scoring 14 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and had 6 assists while CJ Hodge (Rochester, NY/Gates Chili), Keon Rembert (11 rebounds) Bennetsville, SC/Archbishop Walsh) and Barry Mason (Sinclairville, NY/Cassadaga Valley) each chipped in 10 points apiece.
Hilbert (3-5, 6-9) returns home Monday, January 17th to host Pitt-Bradford in a 8pm tip to complete the first-time-through-the-cycle against all AMCC teams.
