Ashley Ward scored a career-high 23 points and Seattle University built a 25-point lead in the second half before holding off a Portland State rally for a 72-59 victory Sunday at Connolly Center.

Ward was 13 of 15 at the free-throw line and had six rebounds. Kacie Sowell contributed 17 points, 11 rebounds and five steals. Sylvia Shephard scored all 13 of her points in the second half, and Daidra Brown had 11 points, four rebounds, three assists and four steals.

"We worked on defense and rebounding a lot this week. We were outstanding in the first half, holding them to 28 percent shooting," Seattle U coach Joan Bonvicini said. "We allowed them back (into the game) in the second half and lost our poise a little bit. For the most part, we were much better. We played harder and smarter. Ashley played a great game, hitting free throws down the stretch, and Kacie gave us another double-double."

The Redhawks (3-4) led by 25 midway through the second half when the Vikings (5-3) went on a 17-2 run that included four three-pointers to cut their deficit to 56-46. Courtney VanBrocklin cut Portland State's deficit to single digits twice, but the Redhawks made their free throws to close it out.

Portland State was led by VanBrocklin with 17 points and four steals.

Seattle University hits the road for three straight games, starting Friday at Pepperdine.
