The Seattle University women’s basketball team posted its fourth consecutive victory Saturday, beating University of Texas Rio Grande Valley 64-56.

The Redhawks (10-10 overall, 4-1 Western Athletic Conference) remained tied for the WAC lead. The game was played before a season-high crowd of 860 at the Connolly Complex.

“It took us a little bit to get going offensively,” said Seattle U coach Suzy Barcomb. “Then we got in a really nice rhythm later in the first half. Ashlyn (Lewey) was key for us today. She provided a spark off the bench.

“For us to get a home sweep is outstanding.”
