BUFFALO, NY – Medaille College’s women’s basketball team raced to a 35-14 halftime lead and never trailed in beating Hilbert College 61-35 on Monday night at the Sullivan Center. The Mavericks improve to 11-4 overall and 7-1 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) while the Hawks drop to 1-13, 1-7.

11 different Mavericks got in the scoring column behind Amanda Baker’s game-high 16 points. Marisa Clark added six points and a game-high 11 assists while Medaille won the battle on the boards 41-37.

The home team led by as many as 30 after a pair of Kim Sendlak free throws made it 56-26 with 4:56 remaining. The Hawks would battle all night and were outscored just 26-22 in the second-half of play while trying to stay in the game.
