Ikea Witt finished the game with 15 points on a 5-of-8 shooting effort and finished with 5-of-9 at the free throw line.

Ikea and Hood both average double-digits in scoring for the Hawks with 11.4 and 10.6 per game, respectively. Hartford’s one weakness offensively is their free throw percentage, the team is shooting just 63.4% from the line.
