The Warhawks jumped out to a 20-2 lead with 14:56 left in the first half and maintained their margin the rest of the way.


It was 55-39 at the half. Loras cut the margin to 13 twice in the second half, 66-53 at 12:59 and 75-62 at 9:35, but each time Whitewater recovered.


Senior Dana Thompson finished with 22 points, sinking 10 of 14 free throws. Chantel Burg contributed a game-high nine rebounds, and Kelsey Hendrickson led both teams with six assists and four steals.
