Buffalo, NY - Hannah Norton’s game highs (14 points/13 rebounds) led D’Youville in a 72-44 win over the visiting Hawks from Hilbert College (0-15, 1-20) February 9.  Sophomore Amber Grosch (Depew, NY/Depew) shared game-highs for the Hawks with Julie Bossard (Arkport, NY/Canisteo-Greenwood) as each netted 11 points for the night. Sara Graves (Retsof, NY/York) and Raven Jones (Rochester, NY/Rush Henrietta) each contributed 10 points which totaled 40 of the teams 42 points.

D’Youville built a fourteen point lead heading into intermission and continued with the same scoring pace outscoring the Hawks by twenty-eight by the final horn. Norton did all of her damage in the first twenty, scoring 12 of her 14 tallies; Grosch went score-less the second half after finding the rim with her eleven points early. Bossard ended with her eighth double-double (11 points/11 rebounds) for the season and freshman Jones earned her collegiate high points. The Hawks had 19 offensive rebounds but their twenty-three percent field goal shooting hurt any effort to close the point spread. Amanda Dudek (Tonawanda, NY/Tonawanda) and Shavonne Walton (Buffalo, NY/Lackawanna) put the effort in on the defensive end with three steals apiece and Liz James (Hanoverton, OH/United Local) swatted her first block of her career.

The Hawks have one more home game which is set for Saturday, February 12 when they take on Mount Aloysius College at 1pm. Prior to the start of the game, the Hawks will honor their lone senior, Amanda Dudek who will be graduating in May after participating in the program for three seasons. Hilbert closes out their season on the road at Bradford (2/16) and Altoona (2/19).
