UW Men’s Basketball vs. Seattle University Redhawks Photos

It’s been a while since we shared any photos from our University of Washington Huskies coverage. As the official photography studio for the Huskies athletics department, we cover multiple sporting events each week. This week presented a fun match-up of Seattle teams, as the UW visited Key Arena to take on the Seattle University Redhawks on their home court. The Huskies handled the Redhawks easily, winning the game 95-74. Check out the game story at gohuskies.com. | Andy
