NAU is scoring 53.5 points per game with 25.5 rebounds per game and 10.5 assists per game, while giving up 92 points against per game this season.

Seattle led 30-25 at the half and they were able to hang on for the win in the second half. The Redhawks shot 46.4% from the field, but only shot 10% on three pointers in the game.

Seattle hasn’t looked great in their first two games of the year, but they have won both and are looking to make it three in a row here. Northern Arizona has only scored 55 and 52 points in their first two games, which were losses by margins of 34 and 43 points. The Lumberjacks are only shooting 36.5% from the field and grabbing 25.5 rebounds per game, which means Seattle should have a big day. I know NAU played two very solid teams in their first two games, but I don’t think it is going to get much better here. Take Seattle in this one.
