Seattle U's Defense Stifles Northern Illinois Huskies In Tune Up For UW

The Seattle University Redhawks are anything but predictable.

That’s not to make any prediction about their upcoming game against UW, but just to note that they’re unpredictable. And at the very least, if they defend the Washington Huskies anything like the way they clamped down on the Northern Illinois Huskies, Tuesday’s 7:10 p.m. game at Key Arena will be much different.

From a Seattle U release about the Redhawks’ 60-48 win:

“Anytime we can go on the road and have some success, we are excited about it. My guys competed, especially defensively and on the boards, and scrapped to get a good lead early in the first half, maintain it throughout the game, and finish it,” head coach Cameron Dollar said.

Seattle U took advantage of poor shooting and ball handling from Northern Illinois to build a lead in the first half, going on runs of 15-2 and 9-0 during the period. The Huskies shot only 13.8 percent from the field in the first half, including missing all 10 three-point attempts, and committed 10 turnovers before halftime.

Or maybe 7-18 Northern Illinois just isn’t that good.
