RUSTON, La. — Coming off their first conference win of the season, the Seattle University men continued their good play Saturday by giving Western Athletic Conference leader Louisiana Tech a scare.

The Redhawks, a 12 ½-point underdog, led at halftime and several times in the second half before finally succumbing in a 78-71 loss.

Seattle U (6-11, 1-6 WAC) took a 59-58 lead with less than six minutes remaining on a shot by Clarence Trent, but that was its final advantage.

Louisiana Tech (16-3, 7-0) responded by going on a 7-0 run to take a 65-59 lead, but the Redhawks did not go down easily. They closed to 70-68 on a three-pointer by Jarell Flora with 1:21 remaining, but the Bulldogs were 8 of 8 from the foul line in the final 69 seconds to clinch the win. Trent scored 19 to lead Seattle U, which won 61-44 at Texas-Arlington on Thursday.

D'Vonne Pickett Jr. added 11 points for the Redhawks, who return home Thursday against Texas-San Antonio.
