GREENSBURG, PA – The Hilbert College women’s basketball team got off the bus focused in Greensburg, PA to play the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference’s pre-season poll’s ‘team-to-beat’ on November 24th. That play-with-a-purpose concept was evident the first thirteen minutes of the contest, but as the game played on, the Bobcats were too much for the Hawks to handle. The end result was a 109-46 loss for Hilbert whose record drops to 0-6 (0-1 AMCC). The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg women move to 2-1 (1-0 AMCC).
