There is no law that says entropy in an open system cannot decrease only that that an isolated system will evolve to it's maximum entropy. The earth's entropy has significantly decreased since it first started to form but only at the entropy expense of the sun. Hawking radiation is so infinitesimal for any BH of any size whatsoever that it would be something like 10 to the 60 years before it would evaporate.
