After spending a large portion of the holiday season away from Anchorage, the red-hot UAA Women’s Basketball team finally has the chance to get off the road and enjoy the comforts of home for a change. A rare four-game homestand in the middle of their league schedule offers the Seawolves both a chance to settle into the start of semester as well as put a bit of distance between themselves and other GNAC foes who are looking to catch UAA atop the conference standings.
Men's basketball finds their groove in Thursday and Saturday wins
The Seawolf Women’s Basketball team extended its lead in Great Northwest Athletic Conference standings over the Western Washington Vikings with their 72-50 win over WWU on Feb. 9 at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex. This win kept the Vikings from trying to unseat the Seawolves from their No. 1 spot in the GNAC within the next couple of games and all but locked up the regular season GNAC title for the Seawolves.
Mario Gill is known for being on the basketball team and is often found on the court whether it’s at practice or in a game. Off the court, he’s a smooth talking, fun, out-going guy who knows everyone’s name. In the gym, he’s determined and focused, but when he’s not “on the clock,” he loves to have fun, relax and listen to music. The-21-year old hails from Portland, Oregon and has played for Wilson High School. In 2008, he was named Portland Interscholastic League’s Player of the Year, and also participated in the Les Schwab Northwest Shootout.
After a record-breaking and crowd-stunning season, the Seawolves’ women’s basketball team ended its regular season with a crushing 94-49 win over in-state rival University of Alaska Fairbanks.
