In the second half, the Hawks played better basketball but still shot just 28.6% from the floor. Hilbert outscored frostburg 36-29 in the half, but the Hawks were never able to cut significantly into the Bobcat lead.

Dan Terrette (Shinglehouse, PA/Oswayo Valley) led Hilbert with 14 points. Freshman Kenneth Sherrie (Wilson, NY/Newfane) added 12 off the bench for Hilbert.

The Hawks return to action February 21, at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
