'Runners and Redhawks to meet in Seattle

UTSA and Seattle U are set for a 2 p.m. CT start time on Tuesday

SAN ANTONIO — The UTSA women's basketball team is set to face off against Seattle U on Tuesday, with a 2 p.m. C.T. tipoff inside the Redhawk Center. The game will also represent the Roadrunner's final nonconference contest of the 2023-24 campaign. 

The game will be broadcast live on ESPN+, with Russell Brown providing play-by-play alongside Olivia Crawford. Neal Raphael will deliver the radio call in the greater San Antonio area on The Bull 93.3 FM and worldwide on the iHeartRadio app.

The Roadrunners (5-5, 0-0 AAC) will look to bounce back after dropping a pair of hard-fought contests against Houston and Oregon. UTSA first suffered a 66-64 defeat at the hands of the Cougars in the Convocation Center before falling 61-48 to the Ducks in Eugene, Oregon. 

Freshman Aysia Proctor provided a bright spot for the squad, earning a spot on the American Athletic Conference's Weekly Honor Roll. Proctor was electric off the bench, averaging 19.5 ppg and 8.0 rpg across the two contests. She first went 9-for-11 from the field for 19 points and five rebounds against Houston before logging a career-high 20 points and 11 rebounds against Oregon for her first collegiate double-double.

UTSA remains the AAC's league leader in several categories, including blocks per game, where a 5.6 average ranks 14th nationally. The 'Runners also collect 47.1 rpg, the 10th most in the NCAA. Additionally, a plus-13.1 rebounding margin slots UTSA 15th on the national leader board. 

Individually, the Roadrunners statistically have three atop the conference, including redshirt junior Elyssa Coleman, who has swatted 17 shots on the year and 112 in her career, putting her atop the UTSA all-time leader board. Along with Coleman, sophomore Sidney Love's 88.6 free throw percentage and senior Kyra White's 35 minutes per game lead the league. 

The Redhawks (1-8, 1-1 WAC) have had a rough start to the season, with a lone win coming in their Western Athletic Conference opener against Utah Valley. Seattle U will be back in action after a brief hiatus, last falling to San Diego State on Dec. 11. 

Maya Moore and Irena Korolenko have been the Redhawk's top scorers, with Moore posting 12.7 ppg at a 51.2% clip and Korolenko 10.9 ppg. Nobody at Seattle U collects as many rebounds as Korolenko, who manages 7.9 rpg, and Peyton Howard leads the way with 3.7 apg. 

Defensively, Moore leads the team, boasting 1.3 bpg, and her 16 steals tie Howard for the most of any Redhawk.
