SEATTLE (AP) — Jarell Flora scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, both career highs, to lead Seattle to a 66-47 win over Sacramento State on Sunday night.
Flora made 10 of 18 field goals, including 5 of 10 from 3-point range. Isiah Umipig added 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting, including five 3's of his own, and Jack Crook had nine points, 12 rebounds and six assists.
Sacramento State (5-5), which came into the game shooting 48 percent from the field, made just 17 of 56 (30.4 percent) shots and was outrebounded 40-28.
Seattle slowly pulled away over the first 20 minutes, taking a 30-17 lead into halftime.
Sacramento State's Dylan Garrity made a 3-pointer with 10:44 remaining to make it 46-39, but a layup by Flora and back-to-back 3's by Umipig pushed the Seattle lead back to 15 with 7 minutes to play and the Hornets never again threatened.
