ANCHORAGE – Senior Kyle Fossman had 22 points and nine rebounds Saturday to lead an Alaska Anchorage three-point barrage, helping the 23rd-ranked Seawolves to a 107-77 Great Northwest Athletic Conference men’s basketball victory over Simon Fraser at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex.

The Seawolves (9-5, 2-1 GNAC) also got 22 points and four assists from junior guard Travis Thompson, plus 15 points and 10 rebounds from junior wing Teancum Stafford as they remained unbeaten in 10 all-time meetings against the visitors from British Columbia.

The Clan (7-5, 0-4) got a game-high 24 points from reserve guard Justin Cole but were outshot 50.8 percent to 42.6 percent and outrebounded 46-28 by the Seawolves.

Fossman, who tied his career-high rebounding total, sank five of UAA’s 17 three-pointers – the most ever for a Seawolf team in a GNAC game. The 6-foot guard from Haines nailed his 200th career trey late in the first half to become the third player in program history to reach that milestone.

After Simon Fraser cut a 47-33 halftime deficit to 48-38 on a three-pointer from David Gebru at the 18:49 mark, Stafford answered with a three and Fossman nailed another moments later for a 60-43 edge. The Seawolves led by 20 for the final 10 minutes and pushed their lead as high as 102-65 with 4:12 remaining.

Sophomore point guard Brian McGill had 17 points on 5-of-7 shooting and dished four assists, and center Brad Mears added 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting as UAA put all five starters in double figures. The 107 points marked UAA’s second-most in a regulation GNAC game.

UAA hits the road for the first time in GNAC play when it travels next week to Montana State Billings on Thursday, Jan. 9 and Seattle Pacific on Saturday, Jan. 11. Both of those games will be available via live webstream at GNACsports.com.
