A look into the 2013-14 Seawolf men’s basketball team

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.

Is Michael Jordan the player Michael Jordan thinks he is?

“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 incoming pt. II: Three new hoopers added to men’s team

Meet the Seawolf: Travis Thompson

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.
