Emina Hadzihusejnovic (Mostar, Bosnia) added 19 points and nine rebounds, just shy of a double-double. Breanna Stouffer (David City, Neb.) added a double-double with 17 point and 12 boards.
The Hawks shot 43 percent from the field and 40 percent from beyond the arc.
The Hawks will look to keep their perfect 13-0 home-court record when they host Grand View University JV at 5 p.m. Friday in Norfolk.
