Yep…tough weekend for the UAA men. The hockey team lost two games at number 3 ranked Minnesota State-Mankato, outshot 88-23 combined. Friday’s 4-1 loss was followed by another shutout loss, 6-0. UAA will try to get that elusive first WCHA victory this coming weekend as they head up the highway to Bemidji, Minnesota for this weekend’s matchup with the Beavers.
Meanwhile, the UAA men’s basketball team went to Fairbanks and lost to their rivals 68-67. In 25 previous games between the two programs, UAA had won 24. The hero for the Nanooks was Spencer Sweet from the free throw line. With UAA leading by two, Sweet was fouled outside the arc with one second to go in regulation, and nailed three straight free throws.
The Seawolves will play an alumni team on December 19 before getting back to GNAC action January 3rd at home against Western Oregon.
Some good news for the Seawolves…both the men and women are returning to practice on the floor at the Alaska Airlines Center. The floor was inundated by water after the earthquake when the sprinkler system went off for an extended period of time. The floor is good to go, and so is the building.
