Hamburg, NY – La Roche men’s basketball team’s depth and athleticism were too much to handle as the Hawks from Hilbert lost the battle December 4. Eleven different RedHawks scored en route to their 75-51 victory with Terrence Fountain scoring the game-high 16 points. La Roche got 46 points from their bench (to Hilbert’s 19) and outscored the Hawks 36 to 18 in the paint.
The Hawks were led by sophomore Dan McFarland’s (Lancaster, NY St. Mary’s) 11 points and Keon Rembert’s (Bennetsville, SC/Archbishop Walsh) 7 rebounds. La Roche jumps to 6-1 and 2-0 in AMCC play. Hilbert drops to 3-4 and limps away with their first conference loss.
La Roche held a 36-25 advantage at half with their 46% FG shooting contributing to the small difference. Freshman CJ Hodge (Rochester, NY/Gates Chili) led the Hawks in the scoring column with 7 points in a balanced Hilbert attack.
It seemed that good things continued to go La Roche’s way in the second half as they got every loose ball and hit big shots when they needed to. The Hawks struggled to find rhythm in their offense shooting 8 for 24 from the floor and were outrebounded by 10 boards.
On Wednesday, December 8, the Penn State Behrend Lions come to town with a perfect 6-0 record and 2 wins in the AMCC. The men’s game will follow the women’s 6 pm tip.
