Womens basketball 2009/2010 season in review

The UAA Women’s Basketball team has finished up their season and once again, proved they were one of the West Region and GNAC powerhouses all year long.

The Seawolves started off the year by winning their fourth straight Great Alaska Shootout championship in 2010 by defeating the Cincinnati Bearcats 49-48. Senior forward Nicci Miller was named tournament MVP while senior guards Kiki Taylor and Tamar Gruwell made the all-tournament team.

Head Coach Tim Moser won his 100th game as the UAA bench boss. The win came back on Feb. 3 against the UAF Nanooks when the Seawolves won 81-48 up in Fairbanks.

Despite battling key injuries and tough competiton in GNAC play, the ‘Wolves made it back to the West Region postseason for the fourth straight year under coach Moser. They fell just short of making a three-peat as the West Champs and earning a bid to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight Championships.

Their 24-5 record finished tied for the third best season in UAA women’s history. They also were nationally ranked within the Top 20 teams nationally throughout the season.
