BUFFALO, NY - Shooting percentage and shot selection contributed to Medaille College’s 87-65 conference victory over visiting Hilbert College. On December 9th, the Mavericks (9-0, 5-0 AMCC) shot 49% from the floor the first half enroute to a 42-23 lead at intermission. A second half run by the Hawks wasn’t enough to make up the difference securing Medaille’s perfect season to date.
