GIBSONIA, PA – Hilbert College junior Dallas Reinard (Smethport, PA/Smethport) has been named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) men’s basketball player of the year. The All-AMCC First Team selection led the conference in scoring (22.1 ppg) and was the most accurate three-point shooter (43.8%, 3.0 3FGM per game), while leading the Hawks (14-13) to the conference semifinals for the second season in a row.

Reinard led the Hawks in scoring 15 times this season while currently ranking 21st nationally in points per game. His 46 point performance at Mount Aloysius College on January 6th ranks as the 11th highest scoring performance nationally. The 6’4 guard currently ranks fourth on the college’s all-time scoring list with 1,247 points. Reinard was a Second Team All-AMCC selection as a sophomore.

Senior guard Glen Ufland (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon) was named an All-AMCC Honorable Mention selection after leading the conference in three-pointers made (86) and is 10th in the league in scoring (15.1 ppg). The Hawks all-time leader in three-point field goals, Ufland has nailed 235 treys over a four-year career.

Hilbert’s season will continue at Vassar College (15-10) Wednesday night in the first round of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Upstate tournament. The winner will advance to next weekend’s semifinals at a site to be determined. For more information on the ECAC go to www.ecac.org.
