Lachlan Dent was a standout for the Hawks men, scoring 21 points, with Keelan Ward dropping 15, as well as five assists and five rebounds.
Sean Vincent Mullan continued a consistent season, with 14 points and six rebounds.
But the Hawks fell 78-67, against a Comets team on top of the Waratah League ladder, with just one loss all season.
The Hawks are ninth with a 3-6 record.
