BUFFALO, NY – Hilbert College fell to Medaille College 65-50 in women’s basketball December 5. In the hard-fought AMCC contest, the final score doesn’t indicate how close the game was late in the second half. Each team went on mini-runs to cut the lead or stretch the lead but the host Mavericks put the game away late to improve to 2-0 in the league. Jessica Jamison and Courtney Coots each netted nine points with Coots pulling down nine rebounds as the Hawks drop to 0-3 in AMCC standings.
Medaille took a 32-18 lead into half time holding an advantage in field goal percentage (.394 to .308) and three point field goals made (3 vs. 0).
The Hawks cut the 14-point lead to eight points several times early in the second half. The first time was at 17:37 when Jamison converted a Natalie Whitman offensive-rebound kick-out into a 32-24 score. Both teams continued to trade baskets while Hilbert kept the spread at eight points over the course of the next eight minutes. But, beginning at the 9:00 mark, Medaille extended the lead to 18 points (57-39).
Still with 4:31 on the game clock, the Hawks offensive production kicked into gear and they went on a 11-0 run fueled by Jamison’s five points. The closest the Hawks could get was seven points (57-50) before the Mavericks finished the game with eight unanswered points.
Jenah Labuski (eight points) and Kateland Ball (seven points) were part of the late-game run for Hilbert with each playing solid minutes for the Hawks.
Hilbert outrebounded Medaille (47-41) but the Hawks gave up too many long distance scores to the host team. Medaille finished the game making nine three-point shots with Hilbert only converting three.
Hilbert (2-6) returns to action December 8 with the 1pm AMCC battle against the winless Penn State Altoona (0-7).
