Southern Utah (2-0, 1-0 D1) at Seattle (3-1, 2-1 D1) – 4:00 PM EST (WAC Digital Network)
Today’s UTR Game of the Day takes us to the Pacific Northwest where the Seattle Redhawks play host to the Thunderbirds of Southern Utah. Seattle beat Washington State in their last game 78-69 – this was their first win against the Cougars since the 1978-79 season. Terrell Brown came off the bench to lead Seattle with 21 points in their game against Washington State. Matej Kavas also had 14 points and 7 boards against the Cougars.
For Southern Utah, they have one D-1 win so far this season – a 66-59 victory at San Jose State. While this would not rate as a significant win for most Division I programs, it was the first time since 2005-06 that Southern Utah won a road game against a Mountain West school. Cameron Oluyitan had 15 points for the Thunderbirds in that game; Dwayne Morgan added 13 points as well. A win by SUU would raise their overall record to 3-0 for the first time since they moved up to Division I.
