Seattle vs. Eastern Washington 2012: Redhawks win battle of the birds, 75-69

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Eastern Washington's poor shooting percentage haunted the team throughout the school's loss to Seattle.

The Seattle Redhawks improved their season record to .500 on Monday night after beating the Eastern Washington Eagles. With 1:15 to go, the Eagles were down 69-62. Eastern Washington attempted nine shots, and Seattle took advantage of the Eagles' eagerness to send the team to the line, hitting four of their seven final free-throw attempts. Seattle won, 75-69.

Seattle outrebounded Eastern Washington, 42-34. Leading the Readhawks in rebounds was Clarence Trent, with nine, to go along with his 11 points and three assists. Chad Rasmussen contributed 16 points, four rebounds and two steals. The Redhawks shot 50 percent from the field, making 30 of 60 shots.

Eastern Washington's awesomely named Venky Jois grabbed 12 of his team's 34 total rebounds and, with his 14 points, had himself a double-double in the loss. The downside to Jois' night were his seven turnovers. Justin Crosqile had team-highs in both points, at 15, and assists, with five. The Eagles were an ugly 36.8 percent shooting, sinking only 21 of 57 baskets.

With the win, Seattle is now 3-3. Eastern Washington's record drops to 2-7.
