Men's Basketball Upsets Hilbert, 76-71

FROSTBURG, MD — Six players scored in double figures to lead Frostburg State to a 76-71 victory over Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference opponent Hilbert in men’s basketball action Friday night at Bobcat Arena.

The Bobcats improved to 4-8 overall and 1-4 in the AMCC, while the Hawks fell to 4-6 overall and 2-2 in the conference.

HC controlled the first half of the game, allowing FSU to only have the lead once at 13:19 off a three-pointer from senior Brandon Howell (Silver Spring, Md./Bethesda-Chevy Chase) to make the score 16-15.

Hilbert held the shot advantage 70% from behind the arc and 56% from the floor, while Frostburg State shot just 50% from three-point range and 40% on the floor. The Hawks lead 45-34 at intermission.

In the second half, Hilbert maintained its lead until sophomore Keith Hazel (Weirton, W.Va./Weir) netted a three pointer followed by a jumper to take over 60-56 with 11:17 left to play.

The teams traded baskets until the Hawks came within 72-71 off a layup by junior Ron Dussett. A basket by Hazel put FSU ahead by three with 30 seconds left on the clock.

Hilbert junior Corey Vander Sluis missed a shot and senior Marcus McIntyre (Washington, D.C./Wilson) grabbed the rebound and drew a foul. Back-to-back free throws with 15 seconds left to play sealed the win.

Hazel paced the Bobcats with 20 points, while senior Daniel Ryley (Frederick, Md./St. John’s Prospect Hall) had a double-double with 14 points and a team-high 10 rebounds and added two blocks. McIntyre, Howell and redshirt-sophomore Brain Owen (Gainesville, Va./Brentsville) each scored 12 points. McIntyre also lead the team with four assists and two steals.

Vander Sluis lead the Hawks with 24 points and 12 rebounds and freshman Rocco DiJohn added 10 points.

The Bobcats return to action tomorrow when they host AMCC opponent Medaille beginning at 4:00 pm.
