ANCHORAGE – Seniors Autummn Williams and Alysha Devine combined for 43 points and junior guard Zhara Laster delivered a big all-around effort Saturday to propel the 2nd-ranked Alaska Anchorage women’s basketball team to its 17th consecutive victory, 91-50 over Western Oregon at the Alaska Airlines Center.

The Seawolves (21-1, 14-0 Great Northwest Athletic Conference) got a game-high 27 points and four steals from Williams as they equaled the third-longest winning streak in program history and won by at least 40 points for the seventh time this season.

The Wolves (7-14, 3-11) were led by 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting from guard Kaylie Boschma, but the visitors from Monmouth, Ore., could not capitalize on a fast start.

Despite missing top scorer Shelby Snook, WOU made its first five shots and seven of its first nine to take a 17-14 lead at the 3:52 mark of the first quarter. Devine gave the Seawolves a lift with a three-pointer to start a 16-0 Seawolf run, however, and UAA would lead by double figures for the game’s final 28 minutes.

The MVP of the 2016 NCAA Div. II West Regional Championships, Devine finished with 16 points – her most in a GNAC game this year – and grabbed two of UAA’s 18 steals. Meanwhile, sophomore guard Tara Thompson scored 11 points and snagged a career-high eight rebounds, and Laster stuffed the stat sheet with four points, 10 rebounds, five assists and six steals in a career-high 34 minutes.

A transfer from Peninsula (Wash.) College, Laster grabbed double-digit boards for the second game in a row, including five on the offensive glass.

Sierra Afoa finished with nine points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals, and fellow junior forward Shelby Cloninger added nine points and two blocks as UAA extended the longest win streak against an opponent in program history, beating WOU for the 27th time in row.

The Seawolves hit the road for four of their last six regular-season games, starting Thursday with a 5 p.m. AST tip against Northwest Nazarene in Nampa, Idaho. That game can be seen live on
