GIBSONIA, PA – Senior men’s basketball players Dallas Reinard (Smethport, PA/Smethport) and Mike Reyes (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon) have garnished All-AMCC (Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference) post season honors. Reinard makes his third appearance, the second as a member of the first team, while Reyes makes his first showing as an honorable mention selection.

The reigning AMCC Player of the Year, Reinard was a two-time AMCC Player of the Week recipient and was twice recognized by the ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference) as the South Region Player of the Week. The 6’4 guard led the Hawks in scoring 20-times while ranking second in the league in points per game (21.4), third in three-pointers made (63), third in steals (44), fourth in free-throw percentage (.785), fifth in rebounding, and 11th in assists (64).

A 2007-08 DIII News pre-season All-American, Reinard ends his career with 1,810 points and 240 three pointers, both tops among Hilbert’s all-time leaders.

The conference’s leader in assists the past three seasons, Reyes paced the Hawks 18-times in 2007-08 while averaging a career best 10.2 ppg. He finished the season ranked second in the AMCC in assist-turnover ratio (1.85), sixth in three-point field goals made (51), and ninth in three-point field goal percentage (.383).

Already the Hilbert’s all-time leader in dishes (528), Reyes has 163 more than previous leader Sam Gioia (’05). His 5.1 apg average over the past four years is also a program best.

The Hawks finished the 2007-08 campaign 12-13 overall and 8-10 in league play, just missing the AMCC post season tournament after semi-final appearances in 2005-06 and 2006-07.
