Allegany College put the Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team to the test on Monday. The Hawks failed. In fact, they didn't even looked like they studied. The Trojans took the game to HCC by taking it away from the Hawks from the start, controlling the tempo and flow to methodically scratch out a 86-78 Maryland JuCo Conference victory at the HCC athletic complex. Allegany's exam came in three parts and HCC acted like it needed CliffsNotes to have a clue. “We didn't play consistent defense, we didn't rebound well and we didn't make our foul shots,” said HCC coach Barry Brown.

The Hagerstown Community College men’s basketball team worked hard and saw the fruits of its labor. Allegany College just labored. HCC used a stifling defense to create three scoring droughts for Allegany that provided a huge cushion for the Hawks in their 79-68 victory in the semifinals of the Region XX Division I tournament at the HCC athletic complex. When it came down to it, the Hawks worked hard to score; the Trojans worked harder while not scoring. “It was all about our defensive intensity and being smart against a great player like Derrell Armstrong,” said HCC coach Barry Brown.
