Basketball

Following a two-game road trip, the Redhawks came back and lost at home to California Baptist
University (CBU).

During the first half, Seattle University held a strong lead due to Anand Hundal and Terrel Brown’s three triples in the first five minutes of the game. Just before halftime, CBU surged back and the Redhawks lead was cut to 35-33. The second half proved difficult for the Redhawks as CBU stormed back, barely missing, to take the win.

Brown scored a game-high of 24 points for Seattle U, while Mattia Da Campo played a season-high of 38 minutes. Da Campo finished with a 13-point, 13-rebound double-double, the first of his career. Myles Carter also contributed 12 points.

Sophomore Isaac Parker finished close behind Raper in the 50 freestyle with a time of 20.92 seconds, and Senior Ian Keane took third. Ryan Shaw, Neton, Raper, and Parker competed together in the 200-yard medley relay with a combined win of 1:33.08, winning gold.
