Seattle University athletics is expecting the largest crowd to attend a home game since reclassification, but to swing that crowd of locals in their favor they will probably have to get off to a better start than they did last year at Hec Ed.
Time to Play the Game: Seattle U Hosts Washington Tuesday - Seattle University Redhawks Athletics
GETTING OUT OF THE BLOCKS: For Seattle University to have a chance against Washington, it will need a much better start than it has produced over the past two seasons. In the March 3, 2009 meeting, the game was tied at 4-4 when Washington went on a 21-4 run over a nine-minute span in the first half to pull ahead. The Huskies solidified their advantage with a 14-6 scoring run in the final five minutes of the first half to open a 42-19 lead at halftime. Last season, Washington scored the first 18 points of the game and opened a 30-3 lead halfway through the first half. The Huskies hit eight of their first ten shots from the field while the Redhawks missed 11 of their first 12 field goal attempts.
Regardless of the outcome, one could imagine that this could be the best atmosphere in KeyArena...since the deafening crowd of the Seattle Storm this past summer.
