The Redhawks head back on the road once more to wrap up the bulk of their non-conference slate, facing Pacific Northwest rival Portland on Mar. 13, followed by three games at 2018 NCAA Tournament qualifier San Diego State (Mar. 15-17).
"Pacific and San Diego State will both provide quality competitive that will help us see where we are at with our young team," Harrel said.

Seattle U will also host the conference's newest member California Baptist (Apr. 5-7), Sacramento State (Apr. 12-14), Chicago State (May 3-5) and reigning WAC Tournament champion New Mexico State (May 10-12).
