FROSTBURG, Md. – The Hilbert College women’s basketball team faced a tough challenge over the weekend, facing the two top teams in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC).  The Hawks fell to Pitt-Greensburg on Friday night, 81-48, and then fell to top seed Frostburg State, 100-52.  The Hawks are now 6-16 on the season, and 4-12 in AMCC play.


At Pitt-Greensburg on Friday, Hilbert remained close with the home team for the first nine minutes of the game, trailing 14-12 at the 11:17 mark.  The Bobcats took over from there, going on a quick 15-0 run over the next four minutes. 


Trailing 46-26 to start the half, the Hawks continued to struggle from the field.  Hilbert shot just 26% from the field in the second half, and were outscored 35-22 as Pitt-Greensburg ran away with the victory.


Autumn Lee-Jeffries (Buffalo, NY/Holy Angels) had nine points and 19 rebounds for Hilbert.  Amy Anderson (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) led the Hawks in scoring with 13 points.  Tiffany Menhorn came off the bench for Pitt-Greensburg and had a game-high 18 points.


On Saturday afternoon, the Hawks took on Frostburg State.  Previously unbeaten heading into the weekend, the Bobcats were defeated by Medaille College the night before. 


Frostburg State came out firing on all cylinders, as Preseason Player of the Year Tracey Little scored the games first two baskets.  Hilbert would never lead in this game, as Frostburg dominated the boards, outrebounding Hilbert 55-35, and created 23 turnovers.


Kristen Curry (Ransomville, NY/Wilson) led the Hawks with 16 points.  Perri Kraengel (Hamburg, NY/Hamburg) added 10 for Hilbert.  Tracey Little finished the game with 27 points and 17 rebounds, and Tracie George added 16 points and seven assists for Frostburg.


Hilbert continues their season in a non-conference game at home against Alfred University on Tuesday, February 15.  The game is scheduled for 7:00 PM.
