UVU hits game winning three on Seattle

UVU hits game winning three on Seattle

by Daniel Olsen

In a hard fought game, the Utah Valley Wolverines would not be denied as they beat the Seattle RedHawks on a last second three-pointer to win 93-92 in the Evergreen state. It was their highest point total this season among Division I opponents.

Trey Woodbury was the hero as he scored off an assist from teammate Blaze Nield with five seconds to go. Seattle then dribbled the length of the floor for a desperation heave that did not fall. With the win, the Wolverines are back to a .500 record at 5-5.

UVU had a stellar 29-point performance from 6’1” center Fardaws Aimaq. Jamison Overton and previously mentioned hero Woodbury combined for 41 points in the backcourt. Despite giving away 22 turnovers and shooting just 28 percent of their threes, UVU found a way to win by dominating the boards 45-33. This lead to easy buckets as they shot 52 percent from the field. Seattle ironically shot better from three (37 percent) than they did overall from the field (34 percent).

The Wolverines will face off Seattle again on Saturday night at 7 PM Mountain Time. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+.
