Exciting Season Ahead for Redhawk Basketball
Posted by Seattle University Alumni Association on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 10:58 AM PDT
Calling all Redhawks! The 2017-18 men’s basketball season is shaping up to be one to watch. It all starts Friday, November 10 at Saint Louis. This game will be the first with new Head Coach Jim Hayford at the helm. During WAC Media Day, Hayford said the Redhawks would be focusing on shooting a lot of threes, attacking the basket and dominant post play. This season will have fans on the edge of their seats. Don’t take our word for it, in a recent article, Hero Sports said, “The Seattle University Redhawks have become the most interesting basketball team in the Emerald City.”
It’s not just the action on the court you have to look forward to, but a season of alumni rallies and a chance to enjoy the newly renovated Connolly Center Complex, as the Redhawks prepare to host home games on campus and in KeyArena.
When asked, Coach Hayford said, “My desire is to build a basketball program that all of Seattle U's alumni will take great pride in. I want our games to be a meeting place for current students and alumni, something that draws people together.”
Get ready to show your Redhawk pride at this season’s alumni pre-game rallies and mark your calendars so you don’t miss a minute of the action.
