SEATTLE -- Riley Grigsby knocked down a 3-pointer with more than a minute left and Morgan Means added a jumper and two free throws in the closing seconds to help Seattle fend off a late rally by Grand Canyon and preserve a 95-89 win on Thursday night.
Means hit a 3 with 13:50 to play that put Seattle up 69-55, but the Antelopes rallied and cut their deficit to just two points, 88-82 with 1:36 to play after a jumper by Mikey Dixon.
Terrell Brown scored his 1,000th career point and finished with 31 points and nine assists for Seattle (13-14, 6-6 Western Athletic Conference). Grigsby knocked down 4 of his 6 3-point attempts and finished with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Mattia Da Campo added 13 points and Means added 11.
