Washington basketball pulls away against Seattle U

Washington basketball was actually trailing at halftime, but the Huskies used a strong second half to close out the Redhawks

Washington basketball wasn’t able to get out in transition the way they would’ve liked, but behind Isaiah Stewart’s career-high 27 points, the Huskies were able to pull away for an 81-59 victory.

The final score doesn’t tell the full story though, as the Redhawks were able to keep the game between three and six points for the majority of the second half before the Huskies went on a 16-2 run to close out the game.

Stewart was dominant in the paint once again, going 11/14 from the floor, while also pulling down a team-high 13 rebounds.

Quade Green had his best night as a Husky, finishing with 20 points. He had a spectacular night from the floor, going 7/8 in total and 4/5 from behind the three-point line. If Green can continue to play like he did on Tuesday night, the Huskies will be a hard team to beat.

Jaden McDaniels finished in double digits with 10 points, and he was able to add five rebounds and tied for the team lead with four assists.

Nahziah Carter didn’t have his best night shooting, going 2/7 from the floor with four turnovers. However, he didn’t allow his offensive woes to affect his defense, as he led the Huskies with five blocked shots.

The Redhawks were led by senior guard Terrell Brown with 21 points. However, 15 of those points came in the first half and the Huskies were able to smother him for most of the second half.

Seattle U had only one other player in double figures, guard Morgan Means finished with 13 points. Means had an off night from behind the three-point line, going 1/7 from long range.
