DENVER — Seattle University's women's basketball team gutted out a challenge from Denver for a 69-66 victory to stay unbeaten in Western Athletic Conference play.

Sylvia Shephard led the Redhawks (8-6, 5-0) with 21 points and nine rebounds.

Shephard's free throw gave the Redhawks a 65-63 lead, but Morgan Van Riper-Rose made a layup with 2:09 left to tie the score at 65. Daidra Brown made a layup with 1:25 remaining to give the Redhawks a lead and Kacie Sowell made two free throws to seal the win.

"This was a huge win for us against a very good Denver team," said Redhawks coach Joan Bonvicini. "We really struggled early, maybe it was the travel or the altitude, but Denver was really hitting shots and we were getting outrebounded.

"Right now our team is just playing with confidence; when a game is close, we just believe we're going to pull it out."

Van Riper-Rose scored 21 for Denver (8-9, 3-3).
