Durant Harvin (Baltimore, MD/Franklin) led the Lions with 12 points.

Hilbert came out strong and took control of the game early in the first half. Dan McFarland's fastbreak layup at 13:09 gave the Hawks a 21-10 lead.
Meanwhile, the home team's defense proved to be smothering, holding the Lions scoreless for a streak of seven minutes and 50 seconds midway through the first half.

In the second half, Mitch Moyer's (Port Matilda, PA/Bald Eagle) three-pointer cut Penn State Altoona's deficit to 42-29 at 18:48.
But the Hawks went on to lead by as much as 30 points, ending the Lions' season on a sour note.
