SCHANTZ SCORES 1,000th POINT IN WIN OVER RENSSELAER


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.
