Sabre Proctor reached double figures in scoring for the 10th consecutive game with a 20-point performance, and Miranda Jenkins and Brittany Snow tallied 13 points apiece.

Deanna Mayza hit two free throws on the other end, but Jenkins answered with a layup and the Seawolves hit their free throws down the stretch to snap a 17-game losing streak against the Hawks.
