In what was a tightly contested basketball game, the Nanooks of Fairbanks ended a 16-game losing streak against the Seawolves of Anchorage, with a final score of 68 to 70.
Here’s the Women’s and Men’s Great Alaska Shootout Schedule!
Also: get a break down with Thomas McIntyre and Mark Hoffman including stats on the University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves (Women’s and Men’s), Georgetown University Hoyas, Nicholls State University Colonels, UC Riverside Highlanders, Indiana State Sycamores, University of Denver Pioneers, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Phoenix, University of Tulsa Golden Hurricane, Pepperdine University Waves, Texas Christian University Horned Frogs, and Harvard University Crimson.
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.
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.
