MONMOUTH, Ore. – Sophomore guard Jessica Madison led a balanced Alaska Anchorage attack Monday with 15 points in a 73-47 women’s basketball victory over Western Oregon at the New P.E. Building.

The Seawolves (15-6, 8-5 GNAC) also got 12 points and eight rebounds from junior wing Alli Madison, plus 11 points, five rebounds and five assists from freshman point guard Kiki Robertson as they moved into fifth place in a tight Great Northwest Athletic Conference race.

The Wolves (6-14, 3-9) were led by 14 points and five rebounds from Dana Goularte in a game that was postponed from Saturday due to inclement weather.

UAA’s victory ran its program-record win streak to 21 games against WOU, including the last 11 meetings in Monmouth.

The Seawolves used a dominating performance on the glass, outrebounding the Wolves 54-33, led by senior forward Kylie Burns (11 rebounds) and junior center Emily Craft (9 rebs., 6 pts, career-high 5 assists). Craft scored consecutive baskets during a decisive 15-2 run midway through the first half, and the Seawolves quickly extended a 33-26 halftime lead after the break, holding their hosts without a field goal for nearly 11 minutes.

By the time WOU’s Angie Titus sank a jumper the 9:03 mark, UAA had extended to its largest lead at 61-31. The Seawolves outshot the Wolves .408 to .273 and collected 17 steals off 22 turnovers.

UAA got a lift off the bench from reserve guards Alyssa Hutchins (6 points, 2-3 3FG) and Christina Davis (5 assists) as well.

The Seawolves return to the Wells Fargo Sports Complex for a Saturday matinee against rival Alaska Fairbanks, with tip-off set for 2 p.m.

NOTES: WOU’s last win in the series came Dec. 6, 2003 in Anchorage (64-58) … UAA last lost in Monmouth on Jan. 16, 2003 (59-50) … now with 237 points on the season, Robertson moved into 10th place on UAA’s freshman scoring list … Robertson already ranks 3rd on the rookie lists in steals (79) and assists (108), with both records within striking range … Burns grabbed 11 rebounds for the second straight game and notched double-figures for the fifth time this season … Burns sank her 100th career three-pointer Saturday, becoming the 11th Seawolf to reach that plateau.
