The Seattle University women's basketball team got its second win in as many days in Hawaii, defeating Hawaii Pacific 75-56 on Thursday afternoon in Honolulu.
Quinn Brewe led Seattle U. with 15 points and nine rebounds in her second start for the Redhawks. Laina Sobczak chipped in 10 points and eight rebounds as Seattle dominated the glass, outrebounding Hawaii Pacific 53-39.
Seattle built a big lead early, hitting five three-pointers and shooting 41.7 percent (15 of 36) overall on the way to a 45-28 halftime advantage.
The Redhawks struggled offensively in the second half, including hitting just 1 of 14 from three-point range, but held on for the victory.
Washington State quarterback Alex Brink received the ARA Sportsmanship Award, presented by the Awards and Recognition Association.
Brink topped nine other finalists in voting by an ARA panel that included retired Brigham Young coach LaVell Edwards, who was in Seattle on Thursday to help present the award at the Washington State-Citadel men's basketball game at KeyArena.
Candidates had to be impact players on the field, display good sportsmanship, be good students and perform community-service work. Brink was involved in a "Reading Buddies" program in the Pullman School District for four years. He graduated from WSU earlier this month with a 3.55 grade-point average.
UW snaps up Lopez
The Washington football team is adding some walk-on depth at long snapper.
Bellevue High School coach Butch Goncharoff said Thursday that Brendan Lopez, former Wolverines linebacker and long snapper, has decided to leave Michigan and transfer to Washington.
Lopez is a walk-on at Michigan, where he is redshirting this season. Goncharoff said Lopez will stay at Michigan through the team's date with Florida in the Capital One Bowl, then come to UW.
"He wants to come back home," Goncharoff said of Lopez, who was the Class 3A co-defensive MVP of the KingCo Conference in 2006 as a linebacker.
The 6-foot, 244-pound Lopez will join in the depth at long snapper behind returning starter Danny Morovick, who will be a junior next season.
• Kyle Foster, a 2005 graduate of West Valley High, has signed a letter of intent to play men's basketball at Evergreen State in 2008. He currently attends Walla Walla Community College.
