Seattle U men's basketball team loses at Denver, 72-55

By The Associated Press

DENVER — Chris Udofia scored 23 points, including three three-pointers, to lead Denver to its 10th win in 11 games, 72-55 over Seattle University on Thursday night.

Luiz Bidart had 14 points for the Redhawks (7-15, 2-10), who have lost five of their past six games.

Seattle shot 56 percent from the field and out-rebounded Denver 29-20 but had 26 turnovers, including 22 steals — eight of them by Chase Hallam.

Jalen Love added 11 points and Hallam had 10 for the Pioneers (14-8, 10-2 Western Athletic), who lived up to their conference-leading scoring defense. Denver entered play allowing just 55.2 points per game.

Seattle's Chad Rasmussen scored the game's first points on a jumper, but that was the Redhawks' only lead. Denver led by as many as 22 in the second half.

Seattle was 12 of 14 from the free-throw line, outpacing its average of 59.2 percent, sixth-worst in Division I basketball.
