The Seattle Redhawks dropped an embarrassing loss, falling to Jackson State University Tigers by a final score of 91-82 at home at KeyArena Monday night. Jackson State won its first game of the season to improve to 1-7, as Seattle fell to 3-5 on the season.
Seattle took two threes to go up 13-11 early in the contest, but struggled shooting early to fall behind 17-15. Seattle dominated the rebounding battle early to tie things up at 21-21. Seattle then was involved in a seesaw back-and-forth affair to go ahead 37-35 at halftime.
Jackson State then went on a 23-12 run to start the second half to take a 58-49 lead with just under 12 minutes left. Seattle would try to rally multiple times to cut the lead to 62-58, 67-63 and 77-75, but could not make up any ground the rest of the way and lost one of its toughest games Monday.
