Seattle soars past Texas-Pan American 83-62

SEATTLE (AP) – Isiah Umipig scored 21 points and Seattle University never trailed in beating Texas-Pan American 83-62 on Thursday night.

D'Vonne Pickett, Jr. added 15 points and Shore Adenekan contributed 14 while grabbing 11 rebounds for Seattle.

Seattle (11-10, 3-5 Western Athletic Conference) led 42-32 at the break after jumping out to an 11-2 lead and later expanding its advantage to 19 points on a Clarence Trent jumper to go up 36-17 before settling for the 10-point lead at intermission.
