Hamburg, NY – The Hilbert College women’s basketball team closed out their home portion of the 2010-2011 season with a 92-46 loss to Mount Aloysius College February 12. 6’3” Shavonna Donald finished with game highs of 15 points and 11 rebounds proving to be too tall for the Hawks to handle in the paint. Hilbert’s Julie Bossard (Arkport, NY/Canisteo-Greenwood) matched game highs in scoring (15) but missed out on another double/double falling short in rebounding with 9 boards. With the win, Mount Aloysius (8-8, 10-12) has a firm hold on fifth place in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference standings heading into the final week of play. The Hawks remain win-less in league play.

Prior to the start of the game, senior Amanda Dudek (Tonawanda, NY/Tonawanda) {in photo to right with mom, Michelle and coach Peterson} was honored in a brief ceremony thanking her for her efforts and never-say die attitude throughout her three year basketball career at Hilbert. Dudek finished the game with 2 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.   

Mount Aloysius’ 55-23 half time lead was in part due to their forty-eight percent field goal percentage, as well as their offensive execution getting the ball inside to Donald or their other leading scorer, 5’10”  Kaylee Keagy. Junior Sara Graves (Retsof, NY/York) carried the Hawks on her three for five shooting from the floor (2 for 4 behind the arc) with team-leading eight points. MAC out-rebounded the Hawks in the first period 31-13 and had ten different players put points in the book. The game wound down with the visitors continuing to execute offensively in the second period, often times hitting a last second shot as time expired in the thirty-second shot clock.

Hilbert (0-16, 1-21) hits the road to complete their schedule with two games in Pennsylvania against Pitt-Bradford February 16 and at Penn State Altoona February 19.
