Seattle U takes out Wazzu 78-69 in big upset at Showare

The scene was Kent’s Showare Arena where the Seattle University Redhawks hosted the Washington State University Cougars. Considered a tremendous favorite, Ernie Kent’s Cougars obviously were unprepared for a scrappy effort by a team of castoffs as they lose 78-69 to the Redhawks.

WSU was missing their scoring standout Robert Franks; however, they had no answer on defense for Terrell Brown who dropped 21 points and collected 8 rebounds. He was capably assisted by Seton Hall transfer student Myles Carter who had 4 thunderous blocks.

The game started off quite well, with the Redhawks jumping out to a 12-8 lead. They would hold that lead until halftime when they led by a score of 45-40. The lead would halt as WSU would go on a 11-0 run to over take the Redhawks with 13 minutes left, 50-48.

Morgan Means would score 3 of his 11 points on a nicely timed 3 pointer to tie the game at 51-51. Brown would catch fire and Carter would have 2 emphatic slam dunks to bury the visiting Cougars. This would be Seattle U’s 1st win over WSU since the 1978-79 season.
