HAMBURG, NY – The Medaille College women’s basketball team outscored Hilbert College 28-15 in the second half Saturday en route to a 60-46 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) victory.

Leading 32-31 at the half, the visiting Mavericks forced 27 turnovers and made use of 25 offensive rebounds to improve to 8-0 overall and 3-0 in AMCC play.
