Seattle University’s 59-53 upset at the University of Virginia definitely qualifies as unexpected.â†µ
And for Washington Huskies fans tracking Virginia for the sake of their RPI it has to be a bit of a letdown.â†µ
Seattle University entered tonight’s game 0-8 on the road for this season. Virginia on the other hand had won five straight. Familiar faces stepped up for the Redhawks to radically shift the fortunes of both teams.â†µ
Sterling Carter scored 19 points and Aaron Broussard added 15 as Seattle snapped Virginia’s five-game winning streak with a 59-53 victory on Wednesday night.â†µ
Broussard also added 10 rebounds for the Redhawks, who had lost two straight games.â†µ
Virginia (8-4) welcomed leading scorer Mike Scott back into the lineup, but it didn’t make much difference.â†µ
The senior co-captain, who had missed the previous two games with an ankle injury, was rusty. In 31 minutes off the bench, Scott had 12 points and eight rebounds.â†µ
That’s wonderful for the Redhawks. Not so wonderful for the Huskies.
