The Seattle University Redhawks are closer to their cross-town rivals from the University of Washington. In fact, Seattle U put a scare into UW when with 2:04 left on the clock the Redhawks Myles Carter hit a jumper to put SU within 2 points of the Huskies at 62-60. Unfortunately for SU, the size advantage by UW, and the play of UW’s Jaylen Nowell overcame SU’s feisty nature.
The sophomore from Seattle, Nowell led UW in scoring and rebounds with 18 points and 9 rebounds. Nowell has taken the leadership mantle for these Huskies leading the team in points per game at 18.9. With help from Noah Dickerson (6 rebounds) and Dominic Green (7 rebounds) the Huskies dominated the paint out rebounding SU 29-19.
Seattle U’s Myles Carter and Morgan Means led the teams with 15 and 21 points. However, facing Mike Hopkins zone defense, the Redhawks were limited to 35% shooting on the day thus bottling up the normally decent shooting squad (83.5 ppg). Myles Carter with 34 blocked shots got none on the day
Washington now takes a 14 game wining streak against Seattle U in a renewed rivalry that actually goes back to the 1950s.
