Men’s Basketball Wins AMCC Championship, Earns Automatic NCAA Bid

The Medaille College Mavericks men’s basketball team earned the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) Championship with a 74-58 victory over the La Roche College Redhawks on February 26. The win earned Medaille an automatic NCAA Tournament bid.

Against La Roche, the No. 1-seeded Mavericks saw impressive efforts from sophomore Meghale Ford (who led all scorers with 24 points) and junior Mike Hollenbeck. Both Ford and Hollenbeck were selected to the All-Tournament Team.

Coach Mike Blaine’s team powered its way to the championship game with a 91-77 semifinals victory over Penn State Altoona. The Mavericks will face off against Susquehanna on March 3 in the NCAA Tournament opening round.
