Hilbert's Tip-In Gets Thunder Past Marysville
Abe Hilbert

Hilbert made a tip-in at the buzzer to help Nemaha Central past Marysville on Friday by a final score of 51-49. The senior big finished with 12 points and seven rebounds in the victory which helped them improve to 7-4 on the season. Nemaha Central currently sits in third place in the Big 7 with a 3-2 league record.

Hilbert is averaging 13.2 points per game this season on 58.4% shooting, with 6.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.

Last season, he was All-State Honorable Mention and First Team All-Big 7 helping the Thunder to a sub-state championship game appearance.

Head coach Jon Thomas when asked about the veteran playmaker said, “Coming off a late football season, it took Abe a little bit of time to get into a basketball mode.  He has played at a high level since Christmas.  He is becoming more of a leader for us, and he is posting strong and finishing through contact.  Abe is a quiet, but extremely positive person.  He has a great deal of confidence in his teammates and their capabilities.  Abe is the first to give his teammates a positive boost amid adversity.”
