BUFFALO, NY – Freshman Amanda Baker scored a game-high 16 points and pulled down 11 rebounds to help Medaille College to a 73-42 conference victory over Hilbert College.  Autumn Lee-Jeffries (Buffalo, NY/Holy Angels) had 13 points and six rebounds to pace Hilbert.  The loss moves the Hawks record to 3-6 overall, and 1-2 in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference play.  Medaille’s record improves to 7-1, and 2-1 in conference play.


Hilbert College sophomore Amy Anderson (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) added eight points and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds.  Amanda McHale (Bradford, PA/Archbishop Walsh) also added eight points and recorded four blocks for the Hawks.


After going back and forth for the first four minutes, Medaille took control with a 13-0 run, capped by an Amanda Walling three-pointer, pushing the lead to 17-4.  After a few quick buckets by Hilbert cut the lead to single-digits, Medaille again went on a run, this time outscoring the Hawks 25-4 over a ten-minute span that put the game out of reach.


Hilbert takes on AMCC foe Frostburg State on Friday, January 14 at 6:00PM.  This is the first game of a three-game home stand for the Hawks.
