SEATTLE — Six players scored in double figures as Utah Valley University used a balanced effort to topple Seattle University, 84-74, on the road at KeyArena. It was the second win in as many games for the Wolverines (9-10) over the Redhawks after last Saturday's five-point win in Orem.

Isiah Williams finished with 19, Keith Thompson set a new career-high for the second straight game with 18 and Alfonzo Hubbard matched his high with 14 to lead UVU offensively.

Geddes Robinson hauled in 13 rebounds to go along with 11 points and Ben Aird added 12 points and nine boards and four blocks. Holton Hunsaker rounded out the scoring with 10 points along with six assists and three steals.

"We're getting better play from more people. It's as simple as that," said coach Dick Hunsaker. "We really competed hard, especially on the backboards and we were able to get out in transition and make some plays. Seattle's a team with a lot of personnel and athleticism and I thought we really handled their press well."
