Utah State pulled away late for a 75-66 victory over Seattle University.

LOGAN, Utah — Deshaun Sunderhaus had a season-high 23 points, plus 10 rebounds, for his third double-double of the season, but it was not enough as Utah State pulled away late for a 75-66 victory over Seattle University in Western Athletic Conference men’s basketball action Thursday night.

Seattle (5-7 overall) fell to 0-2 in conference games.

Chad Rasmussen finished with 11 points for the Redhawks.

Seattle scored seven of the game’s first nine points but Utah State’s Kyisean Reed scored nine straight points and the Aggies went on a 12-0 scoring run in the first half.

“We had a couple of miscommunications and they got some wide-open shots,” Redhawks coach Cameron Dollar said. “Deshaun did what he can do. He can score on the block and did a good job of that, but that doesn’t mean anything if you aren’t winning.”

A frustrating 18 Seattle U turnovers helped Utah State (12-1, 3-0 WAC).

Sunderhaus shot 10 of 13 from the field as he collected the most points for a Redhawk in a game this season.
