ANCHORAGE – Senior Autummn Williams posted 24 points and five steals and freshman Kimijah King poured in 15 points off the bench Thursday as the 3rd-ranked Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball team rolled to its 15th straight victory, 82-43 over Montana State Billings at the Alaska Airlines Center.

The Seawolves (19-1, 12-0 GNAC) also got nine points on 4-of-5 shooting, nine rebounds and four steals from junior forward Sierra Afoa as they swept the season series and maintained a 1.5-game lead over Western Washington in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference standings.

The Yellowjackets (6-13, 3-8) got 15 points from forward Tiana Hanson, but the defending GNAC runners-up and were outshot .492 to .273, outrebounded 41-32, and forced into 26 turnovers by the Seawolves’ press.

UAA trailed 6-2 after two and a half minutes and led 9-8 at the 5:35 mark of the first quarter before using its defense to take control. The Seawolves would score the next seven points and allowed the visitors just three more field goals for the remainder of the half, taking a 30-17 lead into the locker room.

Looking more focused offensively, UAA shot 68 percent (21 of 31) in the second half. Williams scored 16 of her 24 points and dished all three of her assists after the break, while King finished with 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting (2-4 3FG) in just 19 minutes.

Senior point guard Kiki Robertson approached or exceeded her averages with nine points (4-6 FG), four rebounds, five assists and five steals, while junior guard Zhara Laster – who played in just her sixth game after sitting out the early season with a concussion – had a career-high eight points on 4-of-7 shooting.

The Seawolves will enjoy a rare idle Saturday before returning to the Alaska Airlines Center for the third of four consecutive home games on Feb. 2 against Concordia, Ore.
