CRESSON, PA – Brianna Baker scored a game-high 25 points on nine of 12 shooting to lead the Mount Aloysius College women’s basketball team to a 67-49 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) win over Hilbert College. The loss drops the Hawks to 1-10 overall and 1-4 in the conference.

The visiting Hawks took at 4-2 lead at 19:12 of the first half on a jumper by Kaitlyn Miller (Depew, NY/Depew), but would not lead again the rest of the afternoon. The host Mounties would shoot 50.0% from the field and score on their last five possessions of the half to take a 39-30 lead at the break.

A Lindsey Bush jump shot at 5:11 of the second stanza made it 61-38 and gave the home team their biggest lead of the day. The Mounties (4-6, 1-4) outscored the Hawks 34-4 in the paint while forcing 25 turnovers en route to the 19 point win.

Miller finished with 11 points while Amanda McHale (Bradford, PA/Archbishop Walsh) and Lucy Zver (Jasper, NY/Jasper-Troupsburg) combined for 20 points to pace the Hawks.

Hilbert will next face the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg on Wednesday at 6:00 pm in Greensburg, PA.
