Game thread: Washington 87, Seattle U 74

Good evening from KeyArena. A late-arriving crowd has filled in about a quarter of KeyArena. The upper bowl is closed off and the majority of the lower bowl is filled.

> Washington handled a scrappy Redhawks team well and survives, for the most part, to move back above .500 at 5-4.

> Stewart helped to the back by Suggs and a trainer. Surely Romar is wondering what can happen next on the injury front.

> Hikeem Stewart is hurt. Looks like his knee. He's writhing on the ground with 1:45 left in the game.

> Without Suggs and Andrews, Romar is left to choose between leaving Gaddy in with 4 fouls, or walk-ons Quinn Sterling or Dion Overstreet.

> Fourth foul on Gaddy with 8:12 to go. It's a 19-point Washington lead. Romar leaves him in.

> Suggs hits a 3 for a career-high 20 points. But, he just limped off the court again and went up the tunnel with a trainer.

> Under-12 timeout and Washington leads 64-47. Suggs looks all right after checking back in.

> Scott Suggs just limped off the court and asked for a sub. He's being looked at on the bench.

> Washington has gone to a zone defense and is trying to calm the game down. Leads 52-38 with 15:58 left in the game.

> Seattle U finally gets to muck it up and goes an on 11-2 run to start the half. Timeout Washington, up 51-38.

> Washington shot 64.3 percent in the first half on its way to an easy 49-27 lead. The Huskies have had no issues with Seattle U's press. The Redhawks are doing themselves no favors, to top it off. They are 2-for-12 from the free-throw line. The Redhawks have 11 field goals made and nine turnovers. Not pretty.

> That was a silly foul by Gaddy. He now has two with 3:26 left in the half. Up 23, he can let that go. Washington leads 42-19.

> Desmond Simmons already has seven boards. Suggs hits two free throws to give Washington a 40-16 lead.

> Washington leads 32-16 with 7:43 to go.

> Hikeem Stewart has hit two jumpers. He's now 2-for-6 on the season.

> Huskies 10-for-14 to open the game. Have attempted just one 3-pointer.

> Washington continues to run its press-breaker well. More and more easy hoops for the Huskies. They're up 21-14 with 11:40 to go.

> Washington handling the Seattle U press very well early on. Aziz N'Diaye has a dunk, C.J. Wilcox has a layup. Lots of easy shots going down for a 14-9 Washington lead with 14:12 left in the first half.

> Washington starters are Abdul Gaddy, C.J. Wilcox, Scott Suggs, Desmond Simmons and Aziz N'Diaye.
