HAMBURG, NY: Franciscan University of Steubenville rebounded their way to victory over the Hilbert Hawks on January 31 (48-35). The taller Barons found their way to the offensive glass for second chance opportunities resulting in their second conference win of the year (2-13 AMCC). Hilbert’s offensive run in the second half cut the lead to eight points but couldn’t get any closer. The Hawks find themselves with their 20th loss of year.
