The basketball season is here. Despite a subpar finish, the Seawolf men’s team is coming off a hot run in 2012-13, which included a stellar showing at the Great Alaska Shootout and a 14-3 record at home.
“I don’t think I would lose — other than to Kobe Bryant, because he steals all my moves,” Michael Jordan said. That’s how Air responded when asked how’d he fair in one-on-one games against Jerry West (seriously?), Elgin Baylor, Julius Erving, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. No one does arrogant better than Mike. But he’s right. Right?
The Seawolf men’s basketball team is a couple months away from taking the floor for the 2013-14 season. Their mission will be to top the 18-9 record they posted last year, which included wins over two Division I opponents in the Great Alaska Shootout: UC Riverside and Loyola Marymount.
Only a couple months removed from being named the 2012-13 team MVP, Kyle Fossman is back on his grind. His play also netted him a First Team All-GNAC selection, but he isn’t resting on his laurels this offseason.
As of March 21, the country’s most renowned institution of higher learning can add another accomplishment to its lengthy list of achievements: its first NCAA basketball tournament victory.
The Seawolf men’s basketball team escaped a packed Wells Fargo Center Saturday night with a dramatic, 71-69 victory over the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
The Seawolf men’s basketball team has plenty of time to prepare for its Saturday showdown with in-state rival, UAF Nanooks. Coming off a road trip to Washington, the UAA men only have the Nanooks to prep for this week. The second meeting of the season tips off at 7 p.m. Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Seawolves posted another stellar performance in their 2011-2012 season, with a substantial amount of help from sophomore guard Travis Thompson. Thompson was not scheduled to play at the beginning of the season due to an off-season knee surgery, however, there is no doubt that the change in plans showcased Thompson’s talents throughout the season. TNL caught up with Thompson to get to know him off the court.
UAA senior Taylor Rohde has been no stranger to personal accolades since he arrived on campus last year. The 6’9” center has literally towered over all others, collecting awards left and right at both a league and West Region level.
The UAA Men’s Basketball team suffered a 74-70 loss to Montana State Billings on March 3 in the GNAC Championship game to fall one win short of the conference title for the second straight year.

Give Isaiah Canaan the key to the city of Anchorage. He owns this town after his display in the 2011 Great Alaska Shootout Championship game that lifted the Murray State Racers to a thrilling 90-81 win in double overtime over the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles. Canaan would finish with a tournament-high 36 points, eight rebounds and four assists in 45 minutes of play. The junior guard shot 11 of 22 from the field, as well as 6 of 11 from beyond the arc. The Biloxi, Mississippi native also hit all of his eight attempts from the free throw line.
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.
The UAA Men’s Basketball had a busy offseason and it could pay big dividends come March this upcoming season when they make the push for supremacy in both the GNAC conference and West Region playoffs. One year being removed from a team that made it to the GNAC championship and 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament, the Seawolves stocked up on more talent by adding two players who bring Division-I experience with them.
The UAA Men’s basketball team felt the sting of defeat to Central Washington University, losing 52-50 in what could be considered a questionably called...
