The Hawks 29 percent shooting was the real reason this game got away from them. Vanessa Wilson continued to lead the Hawks in scoring with 18 points on 5/22 shooting. Kenzee Smith chipped in with 14 on 4/10 shooting. Kenadi Brand continues to improve game by game in her return from injury. She added 9 point on 4/7 shooting and pulled down 8 rebounds.
