HAMBURG, NY - The Medaille College men’s basketball team continued its strong all- around play as they earned another road win at Hilbert College on January 27. The Hawks stayed with Medaille for the first half of the game but the tide began to turn for Hilbert a few minutes after intermission when Medaille began the slow pull away. Medaille came out of the locker room with their offense in full gear and tightened their defense up the last 20 minutes of the game for the 89-62 victory. The home team drops to 2-16, 1-12 AMCC while Medaille continues to separate themselves from the rest of the conference with a 13-1 record and 18-1 overall.
