The Associated Press

SEATTLE (AP) – Steven Hauschka matched a franchise record with

five field goals, Marshawn Lynch scored Seattle’s only touchdown on

a 1-yard plunge and the Seahawks forced three turnovers in a

surprising 22-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens yesterday. A week

after staking claim to the lead of the AFC North with a thrilling

last-second win at Pittsburgh, the Ravens flopped on the West Coast

in similar fashion to letdowns twice already this season.

SEATTLE (AP) – C.J. Wilcox scored 19 points and Washington held

off Florida Atlantic 77-71 last night in the World Vision Classic.

Kore White hit a 3-pointer to pull Florida Atlantic within 74-70

with 1:21 left, but missed another long attempt on the Owls’ next

possession. Abdul Gaddy got the rebound, was fouled, and hit both

free throws with 38 seconds remaining to put the Huskies

comfortably ahead.

SEATTLE (AP) – Nemanja Mitrovic scored 13 points and Portland

pulled away in the final minutes to defeat Georgia State 66-61

yesterday at the World Vision Classic. Rashaad Richardson made a

3-pointer to pull Georgia State within 57-55 with 3:16 left, but

the Pilots answered with a 7-0 run to regain control down the

stretch. Brandon McGee had 14 points for Georgia State, which led

only once in the game.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Jasmin Holliday scored 24 points, Amanda

Johnson had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Oregon beat Cal Poly-San

Luis Obispo 102-93 yesterday in the season opener for both schools.
