Junior forward Michael Schantz scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as he became the 24th Hamilton player to surpass 1,000 points in a career in Friday night's victory over Rensselaer, 77-72. Schantz accomplished the feat in just under 2 1/2 seasons and is on pace to become only the second Continental to score 2,000 points and collect 1,000 rebounds.

The Continentals led by 14 at halftime, 39-25, and survived a late second-half surge by the Engineers while Schantz and junior center Jon Schmiegel were on the bench having fouled out of the game. Senior guard Kevin Thorpe shot at a 40% clip from beyond the three-point arc as he chipped in 17, while Schmiegel and junior guard Max Stroman added 11 and 10 points respectively. Hamilton won its third game in a row, improving to 3-4 overall and 3-2 in the UCAA.

Rensselaer's Alex Dowlin scored 17 points and teammate Bobby Hurley added 13 in the loss as the Engineers fell to 3-8 overall.
