Seattle U women’s basketball will host CSU Bakersfield in the regular season finale as they will also honor their three member senior class prior to the contest - Cydnee Ceballos, Taelor Ross, and Kristin Stoffel will be honored for their contributions to the program. Next week, the Redhawks, alongside the league’s seven eligible teams, head to Las Vegas for the 2016 WAC Tournament. Following Saturday’s contest, the bracket will be released on Seattle U Athletics social media.

Ross Passes 1000 Career Points: Senior Taelor Ross became the 15th player in program history to surpass 1000 career points with a basket with 2:47 left in the contest vs. NM State on Feb. 20. Ross becomes the first Redhawk player to accomplish this feat since Sylvia Shephard on Jan. 4, 2014.

Scouting CSU Bakersfield (10-18, 7-6 WAC): Over the past two weekends, the Roadrunners have downed two of the WAC’s top teams, including a 80-66 win vs. UTRGV in Bakersfield and a 76-67 win at Grand Canyon, winning five of their last seven games. Batabe Zempare (11.9) and Alyssa Shannon (10.3) lead the team in double scoring figures while Zempare is nearly averaging a double-double (9.5 rpg). Zempare has been the team’s top scorer in nine contests and top rebounder in 24. Currently tied with Grand Canyon for fourth place in WAC standings, Bakersfield’s seeding in next week’s WAC Tournament is still up in the air depending on Saturday’s results across the league.
