HAMBURG, N.Y. – Julie Seamon’s three-point field goal with 13 seconds remaining gave visiting Cazenovia College a 54-51 come from behind win over Hilbert College Saturday in women’s NCAA division III basketball action.

Hilbert (5-8, 1-1) led by as many as nine points early on before the Wildcats rallied to cut the lead to 24-22 at the half.

Monica Phillips led Cazenovia (2-9, 1-0) with 12 points and eight rebounds while teammate Jen Seymore chipped in with 11 points and 13 boards.

The cold outside found its way into the Hafner Recreation Center as the Lady Hawks went a dismal 1 of 21 from three-point land. The Wildcats nailed 7 of 18 from downtown to help cut into several Hilbert leads throughout the contest.

Hilbert’s Amanda Smolarek (Villa Maria/Lancaster, NY) led all scorers with 19 points and 15 rebounds in a losing effort.

The Lady Hawks travel to North Eastern Athletic Conference foe Medaille College Tuesday for a 6 p.m. game against the Mavericks.
