Hamburg, NY – The Hilbert’s men’s basketball team completed their home and away series against the Bobcats of Pitt-Greensburg January 27 taking a 78-69 victory. Hilbert led the Bobcats 40-34 at the break and returned to the court fired up for the second 20 minutes.  Greensburg closed the gap to 46-45 with 11:48 left in the game, but that was as close as it got.  Hilbert improves to 7-12 overall and 4-8 in AMCC, forcing at two-way tie for 7th place.  Greensburg falls to 6-13 and 3-9 in league play.

Hilbert’s Chris Parrott (Warsaw, NY/Warsaw) was the game-leading scorer coming away with 23 points. The junior {in photo to right}  finished many second chances off of his  10 offensive  rebounds giving him his third  double-double  for the season (4 steals). Sophomore guard Dan McFarland (Lancaster, NY/St. Mary’s) added 15 points and 6 rebounds, and captain Keon Rembert (Bennettsville, SC/Archbishop Walsh) contributed 10 points and 7 rebounds before fouling.
