ANCHORAGE  – Senior forward Jacob Lampkin had 22 points and 10 rebounds and the Alaska Anchorage men’s basketball team used a dominating defensive effort to earn a 65-39 win Tuesday over Alaska Fairbanks in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference opener at the Alaska Airlines Center.

Lampkin tied his own UAA season-high scoring total on 9-of-10 shooting, along with four assists and two blocks, helping the Seawolves (5-4, 1-0 GNAC) shooting a season-best 51 percent from the field.

Guard Alex Baham led UAF (2-5, 0-1) with 10 points as the Nanooks were held to 30 percent shooting and scored their fewest both ever against the Seawolves in 102 all-time meetings.

UAA trailed 3-2 early before pulling away for good with a 14-0 run. UAA’s 29-13 halftime lead equaled the program’s second-fewest points allowed against a Div. II foe in the first half, while the 39 points for the game tied for the fourth-fewest against D-II competition.

Josiah Wood added nine points for UAA, while Maleke Haynes, D.J. Ursery and Jack Macdonald tallied six points apiece.

Meanwhile, the Seawolves extended their winning streaks against UAF to seven straight overall, 15 in a row in Anchorage, and 23 of the last 24 overall. UAA now leads the all-time series 80-22, including 46-5 at home.
