HAMBURG, N.Y. --  The Hilbert College women’s basketball team got off to a slow start, and was never able to recover in a 66-37 loss to the Rochester Institute of Technology on Tuesday night.  The loss drops Hilbert to 1-2 on the season, while RIT gained its first victory of the season (1-0).


RIT jumped out to a quick 8-0 start, and built the lead to 30-10 with 6:12 remaining in the first half.  The second half was much like the first, as Hilbert struggled to get anything going on the offensive end.  The Hawks shot a dismal 23% from the floor in the second half, and 24% for the game.


Amy Anderson (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) led the Hawks with 13 points and seven rebounds.  Autumn Lee-Jeffries (Buffalo, NY/Holy Angels) also chipped in with 12 points in the losing effort.  For RIT, Margot Sandy led all scorers with 18 points and had nine rebounds.


The Hawks are on the road for their next game, as they travel to Pittsburgh, PA and take on conference opponent La Roche College on Friday, December 3rd.  Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 PM.
