DENVER (AP) - Chris Udofia scored 23 points, including three 3-pointers, to lead Denver to its 10th win in 11 games, 72-55 over Seattle on Thursday night.

Jalen Love added 11 points and Chase Hallam had 10 for the Pioneers (14-8, 10-2 Western Athletic), who lived up to their conference-leading scoring defense. Denver entered play allowing just 55.2 points per game.

Luiz Bidart had 14 points for the Redhawks (7-15, 2-10), who have lost five of six. Seattle shot 56 percent of the field and outrebounded Denver 29-20 but had 26 turnovers, including 22 steals - eight of them by Hallam.

Seattle's Chad Rasmussen scored the game's first points on a jumper, but that was the Redhawks' only lead. Denver led 34-23 at halftime and by as many as 22 in the second half.

Seattle was 12 of 14 from the free-throw line, outpacing its average of 59.2 percent, sixth-worst in Division I.
