PORTLAND, Ore. – Alaska Anchorage senior guard Sekou ‘Suki’ Wiggs earned unanimous first-team honors for the second year in a row to lead three Seawolf honorees among the 2016-17 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball postseason awards list, announced Tuesday by the league office.

Wiggs was joined by Second Team All-GNAC selection Spencer Svejcar, while fellow UAA senior Diante Mitchell made the honorable mention.

Western Washington senior guard Taylor Stafford was voted Player of the Year in balloting by the league’s 11 head coaches.

After capturing league newcomer-of-the-year honors last year, Wiggs currently leads the GNAC and ranks sixth nationally in scoring  with 24.2 points per game, along with other league ranks of 18th in rebounding (5.4 rpg), 14th in assists (2.3 apg) and 10th in steals (1.2 spg). The Seattle native (O’Dea High School) and University of Idaho transfer has scored at least 20 points in 20 of 28 games, helping the Seawolves to a 21-7 overall record and a runner-up finish in the GNAC regular-season standings at 15-5.

Wiggs started the GNAC campaign with a school-record 46-point performance in a road win over Central Washington, and he captured back-to-back GNAC Player of the Week honors with four straight 30-point efforts in late January and early February. The 2015-16 Third Team All-American ranks No. 7 on UAA’s career scoring list with 1,448 points in just 60 games, while his career average of 24.1 ppg is on pace to break the program record.

Meanwhile, Svejcar, a 6-4 senior guard, earned a second team award a year after capturing honorable mention accolades. The Arvada, Colo. (Ralston Valley HS) native and Laramie (Wyo.) Community College transfer ranks 13th in the GNAC with 15.1 ppg after tallying double figures in 24 of 28 contests. One of the nation’s most consistent shooters from any distance, he ranks third among the GNAC leaders in three-point percentage at .476 (No. 7 nationally), and fourth in free throw percentage at .862.

Mitchell, a 6-1 guard, picked up honorable mention recognition as the Seawolves’ assists leader and third-leading scorer, averaging 12.2 ppg and 3.1 apg. The Syracuse, Utah, native and Western Nebraska Community College transfer leads the league with an .885 free-throw percentage, connecting at 91 percent in league games.

UAA returns to play Friday at 4:15 p.m. AST in the semifinal round of the GNAC Tournament in Lacey, Wash., where it will face either 3rd-seeded Western Oregon or 6th-seeded Montana State Billings. That game and all action from the GNAC Tournament can be seen live at gnac.tv.
