The Seattle University men's basketball team returns to the ShoWare Center in Kent for the second annual ShoWare College Showcase, as the Redhawks will face the CSU Bakersfield Roadrunners Wednesday, March 6, at 7 p.m.

This will be the eighth meeting all-time between Seattle U and CSU Bakersfield. After the Roadrunners won the first three meetings, the Redhawks have won the last four games between the two schools, including the last meeting Feb. 26, 2011, in Bakersfield, Calif. Behind eight three-pointers by Chad Rasmussen, Seattle U cruised to a 73-54 victory.

There is also a special VIP Club Lounge package with a reserved club seat along with a pregame buffet and access to the no-host bar available for $30.
