Alfred, NY - With the halftime score knotted at 26, Alfred University slowly pulled away from Hilbert College in the second half November 27th to earn a 65-50 victory in women’s basketball.  Junior Magan Campbell (Buffalo, NY/Bennett/ECC) was the game leading scorer and rebounder (22 points/13 rebounds) in thirty-nine minutes of court time. The Hawks (1-3) were better shooters (38% FG vs. 26%), but they committed too many turnovers and gave up too many offensive rebounds which led to easy scores for the host team.

Alfred (3-2)  jumped out to a 7 point lead early in the first half, but the Hawks fought back to take their first lead of the game off a Raven Jones (Rochester, NY/Rush Henrietta) 3-point goal at 10:22. Both teams traded baskets for the next ten minutes before the 26-all intermission score.
Campbell gave the Hawks their last largest lead 35 seconds into the second half when she hit a jumper putting the Hawks up 28-26. At that point, the Hawks couldn’t stop the Saxons who grabbed 24 offensive rebounds for the game (13 in second half). Lyndsay Murphy was Alfred’s floor general dishing a game high 5 assists and scoring 15 points. 
Hilbert’s Julie Bossard (Arkport, NY/Canisteo-Greenwood) earned her 3rd consecutive double double with 14 points/11 rebounds but only three other Hawks found the scoring column which hurt the team’s chances of winning.
The Hawks travel to Houghton College Tuesday, November 29th for a non-conference contest before they begin Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference league play December 4th when they host La Roche College.
