Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Seattle University improved to 4-5 on the season with a 75-48 win against Northern Illinois on Wednesday.

The Seattle University Redhawks snapped their two-game losing streak on Wednesday with a 75-48 win against Northern Illinois.

Coming off a 91-82 loss to Jackson State, Seattle wasted little time jumping ahead of Northern Illinois. Seattle led, 9-5, at the first TV timeout, but extended the lead to 17-7 by the second TV timeout. The Redhawks continued to increase their lead and led, 47-27, at halftime.

Seattle's starters, led by Chad Rasmussen's 14 points, combined for 54 of the Redhawks' 75 points. They dominated the Northern Illinois starters, who combined for just 18 points on 7-of-25 shooting. The Huskies' entire team struggled offensively as Northern Illinois made just 16-of-55 field goal attempts, including 5-of-21 three-point attempts. In addition to Rasmussen, Prince Obasi (13 points) and Deshaun Sunderhaus (10 points) also scored in double figures.

With the win, Seattle improved to 4-5 on the season and 3-3 at home. The Redhawks will play their third game of the week on Saturday when they host the Campbell Fighting Camels.
