Northwest Schools: Seattle U women advance

The Seattle University women are one victory away from the NCAA tournament.
The Redhawks built a lead in the first half and maintained it throughout much of the contest as they defeated Bakersfield 84-79 Friday in the semifinals of the Western Athletic Conference women’s basketball tournament.
The Redhawks (16-15) face top-seeded Idaho (24-8) at 1 p.m. today in a repeat of last year’s title game.
“This was a hard fought game,” Seattle coach Joan Bonvicini said. “Bakersfield is a really good shooting team and is really scrappy. (Bakersfield’s Tyonna) Outland is a terrific athlete and scorer. For us, we just wanted this win and our defense and rebounding, particularly from Wilma (Afunugo) and Kacie (Sowell), was instrumental.”
Sowell led the Redhawks with 20 points and 12 rebounds, recording her 12th double-double of the season. Ashley Ward (15 points), Afunugo (15), and Alexis Montgomery (10) also scored in double figures for Seattle, which shot 56 percent (28-for-50) from the field.
Melissa Sweat led Bakersfield (19-11) with 29 points. Outland added 24.
Simon Fraser 77, Western Washington 70
POMONA, Calif. — The Vikings (19-10) rallied from a 12-point deficit, but could never take the lead in the second half against the Clan (20-9). Guard Katie Colard scored a team-high 20 points for Western.
Cal State Stanislaus 80, Seattle Pacific 72 (OT)
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Senior David Downs scored 27 points for the 11th-ranked Falcons (26-6), who led by as many as 18 points in the first half before falling to the Broncos (22-8).
