Seattle University women’s basketball (9-13, 3-4 WAC) is set to embark on their final two-game roadtrip of the regular season at Chicago State (Thursday, Feb. 4) and UMKC (Saturday, Feb. 6) this weekend.  After sweeping the Cougars and ‘Roos at home to start conference play in January, the Redhawks look for a season sweep of each team this weekend.

Scouting Chicago State (3-18, 1-6 WAC): The Cougars picked up their first conference win of the season last Saturday, a thrilling 77-72 2OT victory vs. UMKC, snapping their 10-game losing streak. Layne Murphy (13.3 ppg) and Kaylee Allen (10.8 ppg) lead the team in scoring while Murphy also leads the team in rebounding (9.1 rpg). The Redhawks are 7-2 all-time vs. Chicago State.

Scouting UMKC (7-13, 2-5 WAC): The ‘Roos had an impressive win at Kansas early in the season (47-44 win, 12/10/16) but, more recently, have lost four of their last five, picking up a 63-57 win at Grand Canyon on Jan. 24. Aries Washington (11.8) and Kiana Law (10.4) are the team leaders in scoring, while Law is also bringing down a team-high 7.2 rebounds per game. The all-time series is tied, 3-3, going into this weekend.

Matzke to Join SU Hall of Fame: Mandy Matzke (1996-2000), Seattle U’s ninth all-time leading scorer (1,258) and eighth all-time leading rebounding (685) is being inducted into the Seattle U Hall of Fame this weekend at the Hall of Fame luncheon on Saturday.

Play4Kay Game: The team’s annual Play4Kay game will be Feb. 20 vs. reigning WAC champions New Mexico State.

The American Sports Network will also televise nationally from the Connolly Complex for the first time. At the game, fans will have the opportunity to buy pink Redhawk tshirts for $10, which will also include admission to the game. All proceeds benefit the Kay Yow Foundation.
