Hamburg, NY –On November 29th Magan Campbell (Buffalo, NY/Bennett/ECC) and Keon Rembert (Bennetsville, SC/Archbishop Walsh) were announced as the AMCC Player of the Week in women’s and men’s basketball. This marks the first time in Hilbert College’s athletic history (as a member in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference) that two basketball players have been named as Players of the Week in the same week.

Returning to school after a four-year stint in the military, Rembert showed no rust last week, averaging 18.0 ppg, 13.0 rpg and 2.0 bpg for the 1-1 Hawks.  He recorded 15 points, 17 boards and 2 swats in a triple OT win over Oberlin, then just missed a second double-double with 21 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks in a 2 point loss to Alfred November 27th.  Rembert is happy to be back on the hardwood and through 5 games this fall, he is the team leading rebounder averaging 8.4 rpg. More than half of his 42 rebounds are on the offensive end of the floor. The junior is Hilbert’s fourth leading scorer averaging 10.2 ppg.
